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 Arthur Tress, Robert Peek, Silvia Gil-Roldan, Helmut Newton and Frank Horvat.

  • In The Dream Collector: Photographer Recreated Childhood's Nightmare, Jacob Aberto presents 40 frightening images from the 1960s by Arthur Tress. We reprised our afternoon with Tress in a 2105 Saturday matinee.
  • Anna Marks presents the Mysterious Photographs of Rotterdam-based photographer Robert Peek who "creates ghostly photographic stills of botanical forms that wouldn't look out of place on Miss Havisham's festering dining room table."
  • In The Soothing Power of Silence, Devid Gualandris showcases the work of Spanish photographer Silvia Gil-Roldán. "I really like my pictures to be as simple and natural as possible," she says.
  • Cath Clarke reviews Gero von Boehm's Helmut Newton: The Bad and the Beautiful. "The intelligence and even-handedness of this documentary about the provocative fashion photographer Helmut Newton makes a change from the fawning tone you get in a lot of fashion films," she writes.
  • In Frank Horvat Has Died, Francis Hodgson presents a few of the master's images. "He was full of years and we need not be too sad. But what an eye he had," he writes. We'll have more on Horvat later today.

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