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 William Klein, Magnum photographers, Thierry Ardouin, Andy Anderson, prison tourism, medium-format cameras and other M2 Macs.

  • In Trying to Contain William Klein in One Show Isn't Easy (gift link), Arthur Lubow reviews the current exhibit at the International Center of Photography.
  • The Guardian presents Side Hustles: What Else Magnum Photographers Get Up To, a selection of images from a new exhibition explores the images Magnum photographers have taken while on commission.
  • Grace Ebert showcases macro images from Thierry Ardouin's Seed Stories, which will be both an exhibition and a book. "The idea for the project germinated more than a decade ago when Ardouin was working on a documentary about French agriculture and discovered that large corporations own the patents to many seed varieties," she writes.
  • Suzanne Sease features A View From the Top of the World, Andy Anderson's personal project. "Given his proximity to peaks in the 5,000-foot range in Idaho, it was a real commitment for photographer Andy Anderson to take on Mount Everest," Anne Telford writes in her introduction.
  • Hope Corrigan writes about The Gruesome Attraction of Prison Tourism with images by Mark Murrmann. The industry "is grappling with a growing criminal justice reform movement," she writes, "challenged by questions about exploitation and voyeurism." We always wonder why visitors are so keen to visit Alcatraz. We always have to tell them to book the visit months in advance. And we no longer go with them.
  • Mike Johnston has a Medium-Format Camera Tip that turns out to be both a retrospective and a current catalog of the format's cameras which, he suspects, "will be the first style or type of film camera to fade from the scene entirely."
  • When Will Apple Ship Other M2 Macs? Howard Oakley does the math. "Although Apple could always spring a surprise, if you're looking for a Mac with a Pro, Max or Ultra series chip and don't want to wait until 2023, you're unlikely to see a suitable M2 model before Christmas this year," he writes.

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