In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention. This time we look at the Milky Way, An-My Lê, Arnaud Freitas, mental health, Tajette O'Halloran, Apple in Rome and SanDisk Professional.

  • The Guardian has published photos from the Milky Way Photographer of the Year 2021 contest taken by 25 photographers from 14 different countries. We particularly liked Navajo Nights by Christine Kenyon.
  • In Mythmaking and Monuments, An-My Lê explores the histories of people, war and place. She took her 5x7 view camera into a shed where a statue of General Robert E. Lee from New Orleans had been stored after removal.
  • Stephanie Wade presents New York, a new series by French photographer Arnaud Freitas. The travel photographer shot this group of images before lockdown. "His striking images balance detailed shots of things that are quintessentially New York -- like hot dogs, skyscrapers and dog walkers -- with intimate portraits and zoomed-in frames of objects in seemingly unexpected settings," she writes.
  • In These 11 Photographers Are Challenging the Mental Health Stigma, Ellyn Kail writes, "One in five U.S. adults experiences mental illness each year. I happen to be one of them."
  • Justin Herfst showcases Tajette O'Halloran's In Australia, which is "constructed from her memory, her subjects cast to reflect and reenact her adolescent years in Lismore," a hippie commune. "It was all about one love and marijuana and sustainability and all these wonderful ideals," she says. But it didn't work out so well.
  • Federico Viticci goes Inside Apple's Stunning New Store in via Del Corso with photographer Silvia Gatta who took photos with her iPhone 12 Pro Max, editing them in Photos on iOS 14.6. She has more on his Instagram feed.
  • Western Digital has introduced its SanDisk Professional line of premium storage products. The lineup features pro-grade G-Technology, Ultrastar enterprise drives, AmorLock security, attractively designed enclosures and more.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
