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 Sandra Cattaneo Adorno, Foto-Cine Clube Bandeirante, tears, a white shark, Michael Pederson, Apple's Cinematic mode, BigPicture on exhibit and the 2021 Black & White Photography Awards.

  • In A Bittersweet Love Letter to Ipanema Beach, Ellyn Kail presents the images of Sandra Cattaneo Adorno, who took up photography at the age of sixtyand returned to the beach of her youth. "Ipanema is a place that always hides some secrets for me to discover," she says. Not all of them happy.
  • Brazil's Secret Photography Auteurs shot together as São Paulo’s Foto-Cine Clube Bandeirante from 1946 through 1964.
  • Rose-Lynn Fisher used a microscope to capture The Topography of Tears "during a period of life changes and grief." The result was "like aerial views of emotional terrain." The work, which she began in 2008, was published in 2017 as a book as well.
  • In A Flying Great White Shark, Chris Fallows remembers his best photograph. "I looked at the first frame and it was soft -- I was certain I'd ballsed it up," he writes. "Then this was the second frame. It was pin-sharp. The rush was just incredible."
  • Michael Pederson photographed the Quippy Interventions he camouflages as signage. Just delightful.
  • Jim Dalrymple provides a synopsis of Apple updates to the iPhone 13, iPad, and Apple Watch yesterday. "Cinematic mode is going to be something to watch as this iPhone model gets released," he writes. There's a bit more about that here:
  • On Saturday, Oct. 16, the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco will open BigPicture featuring 49 winning images from the 2021 BigPicture: Natural World Photography Competition.
  • LensCulture is now accepting submissions for its Black & White Photography Awards. "All winning entries will be exhibited at a Chelsea gallery during Paris Photo New York, which brings together hundreds of galleries, publishers and collectors, for one high-spirited celebration of the photographic medium," the publication notes.

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