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 Helge Skodvin, Alessa Grande, safety and photography as a language.

  • Grace Holiday features Helge Skodvin's Best Phone Picture, a shot of his youngest daughter hiding under the bed to avoid an online math class. "I was walking past her bedroom and spotted her legs sticking out," he says. "I had my phone in my hand, so I just snapped the scene."
  • In Alessa Grande's Beautiful Portraits Show That Everyone Is Perfect, the Phoblographer interviews the German photographer but gives you a choice of reading the transcript with large illustrations of her work or watching the 14:07 video (which we present without ads):
  • A Reddit poster asks for safety advice for Female Photographers Taking Photos Alone. And she gets some good advice for anyone photographing alone in public. Calling out, "Streaming live," is a new (but very effective) one.
  • Andrew Molitor explains why Photography Is Not a Language. "While the definition of "language" is somewhat contested, absolutely nobody thinks that a pile of signs, in the semiotics sense, is a language," he writes.

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