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 Ukraine, Friends of Photography Ansel Adams workshops, Barkley Hendricks and the Right to Repair.

  • In An Inside View of Wartime Ukraine, photojournalist Liam Kennedy witnesses the war crimes of Bucha, the bombings of civilian homes in Saltivka and the heavy artillery in the Donbas region. "We are surrounded by the destruction left in the wake of Russian forces and by the Ukrainians affected by a terrible and unjust war," he writes.
  • In An AA Workshop in the Golden Era, Jim Kasson fondly recalls attending Friends of Photography Ansel Adams workshops. The piece includes a photo of Adams in 1983 shortly before his death as well as a few lessons learned. Beautiful piece.
  • In New Exhibit Chronicles Work of Late Painter Barkley Hendricks and His Use of the Camera, Jared Bowen of GBH Boston shows how Hendricks used the camera as what he called his mechanical sketchbook.
  • Scharon Harding interviews iFixit's Kyle Wiens on the Right to Repair. ""I think we should be talking about lifespans of smartphones in terms of 20, 25 years," Wiens said.

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