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 D-Day, the negative, Vivian Maier, Muay Thai kickboxers, Leica Lux, storage options, Walmart and a free street photography guide.

  • Matt Fidler curates images of the D-Day 80th Anniversary commemorations in France by British, Canadian and other Commonwealth troops alongside the U.S. and the Free French.
  • In The Lost Art of the Negative (gift link), Ali Watkins reports that film processing labs find themselves stuck with the negatives photographers never bother to retrieve. "Negatives would've never been forgotten before, because people had to pick up the digital copy," she quotes Richard Damery, a film developer at Aperture Printing in London. "They can now have everything uploaded to them. They forget about the negatives."
  • Kate Mothes presents a few images from Unseen Work, the first U.S. retrospective of Vivian Maier's work on view at Fotografiska New York.
  • Suzanne Sease features photographs of Muay Thai Kickboxers, the personal project of Brian Pineda. "With my images I aim to show the rigorous training, the moments of silent contemplation and the dynamic energy of these athletes," he says.
  • Chris Gampat reviews Leica Lux, a camera app that can emulate Leica film camera styles. He doesn't think it will replace a Leica. "But it's a cool way to get Leica looks on your phone if anything," he concludes.
  • Jason Row surveys The Best Storage Options for Photographers.
  • In Sign O' the Times, Mike Johnston wanders into a Walmart and finds the camera department. "Inside was a largely empty room with a three-sided rectangle of countertop in the middle," he reports. "No one in there."
  • LensCulture's 89-page Street Photography -- a Free Guide collects advice from a range of street photographers. The PDF is a free download in exchange for your email address.

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