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 Matt Black, Inzajeano Latif, Justin Bettma, Bertien van Manen, the Instax Mini Evo and APFS backups.

  • In It's Not the Other America, It's Just America, Matt Black documents the places that "don't matter." Mark Murrmann profiles the photographer whose 100,000 mile odyssey through 46 states and Puerto Rico has become the book American Geography.
  • Inzajeano Latif spent over a year talking with, photographing and mentoring participants in Homeless Truths, a project which gives an insight into the lives of five people who have experienced homelessness in London. "I have approached this project aware that these people are all extremely individual, each with very individual experiences," Latif said. "It is not necessarily what people would associate homelessness with."
  • Suzanne Sease features the portraits of Hasidic community in New York, the personal project of Justin Bettman. "For many reasons, sitting for a portrait within the Hasidic community is seen as taboo," he says. A few Hasidic women did sit for portraits but did not want them shared publicly, he adds.
  • In The Poetic Verisimilitude of the Vernacular, Doreen Schmid reviews Bertien van Manen's Archive. "Her family did not understand this impulse to make pictures," Schmid writes, "except for her father who imprinted his belief in her by purchasing a rubber stamp for her earliest photos, validating her as an image maker, in contrast to her mother's emphasis on being 'a beautiful woman and perfect mother.'"
  • Fujifilm announced it will introduced its $199.95 Instax Mini Evo in February 2022. "The camera's unique hybrid format combines the excitement and satisfaction of traditional instant camera functionality along with the capabilities of digital imaging technology to select, share and store images," the company said.
  • Howard Oakley details using fsck in How Should You Check an APFS Backup Store?
