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 Olivo Barbieri, Photoville, Sebastian Rich, Ethan Pines, improvement, Walter Chandoha and hammocks.

  • Are Your Eyes Playing Tricks? the Guardian asks in presenting a selection of the early work of Olivo Barbieri. "His images make us ask: how do our minds shape the image we have of the world? And above all, do we really see reality?"
  • Siddhartha Mitter reviews Photoville, the pop-up fall festival that turns the waterfront under the Brooklyn Bridge. All 60-plus exhibitions by some 300 artists are presented as high-quality digital prints on weatherproof banners across five boroughs. "Photoville is always a joyous jumble, embracing conceptual and narrative projects along with photojournalism," he writes.
  • Photographer Sebastian Rich spent a week with United Nations peacekeepers on the green line in Cypress, capturing how they are doing their job in the time of Covid-19 in 'We Are Not Letting Down Our Guard'.
  • Heidi Volpe talks to Ethan Pines about American Window, his summer road trip through Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota and Utah. "There's metaphor in a window. It's a view, an opening, a portal through which lies something more. It offers a framed glimpse into what's out there," he says.
  • Dave Williams describes Delving Deep Into Improvement in a time of uncertainty. "Keep taking photos. Keep thinking about why they do and don't work," he writes. "Keep striving for success."
  • Grace Ebert takes a peek at Pudgy, Curious and Drowsy Pups captured over five decades by the late Walter Chandoha. The images are from Taschen's new volume Dogs, a sequel to Cats.
  • Jasenka Grujin found 25 Creative Photographs of Hammocks, which she calls "the ultimate chill-out tool."

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