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 the BIAZA winners, a rare black panther, Nigel Cox, Pierpaolo Piccioli, troubleshooting, Lucus Landers, Catherine Asanov and the iPhone Photography Awards.

  • The Guardian showcases the winning images from Zoos and Aquariums from the BIAZA photo competition. "The competition, only open to zoo or aquarium staff and volunteers, received hundreds of entries capturing amazing moments from pensive monkeys to a diver swimming with sharks."
  • Mithun H captured a Rare Black Panther shadowing a leopard in the Kabini Forest in India.
  • Suzanne Sease features images from Drift, the personal project of Brooklyn photographer Nigel Cox. "The contrast between delicate individual snowflakes and the humbling and disabling power of a snowstorm has always fascinated me," he says.
  • In When Brad Photographed Gwyneth, Vanessa Friedman describes the project of Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino, who enlisted 23 celebrity friends and their significant someones to play subject and translator for his latest ad campaign, portraiture-by-lockdown buddy.
  • In Troubleshooting Stuff That Goes Wrong, Kirk Tuck demonstrates the foolproof technique of stepping away for a moment and the indispensable tool known as a cup of coffee.
  • Lucus Landers is a Brooklyn-based camera maker and photographer. He spoke about his cameras in an hour-long Google Meet last Sunday:
  • Catherine Asanov has released USA 2020: A Parody, a series of 19 advertisements in which she poses to comment on government, business and social responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. "It's me joking around in a serious way," she said.
  • Shawn King advises Be Wary of the iPhone Photography Awards. Entry fees, unidentified judges, pitiful prizes all add up to a caveat emptor from King.

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