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 art photographers, Art Streiber, Superb Owl shortlist, custom camera paint jobs and ancient Roman portraits.

  • LensCulture presents 39 New Discoveries in Art Photography from 18 countries on five continents. "Underpinning much of the work, you will find some deep philosophical thinking, self-reflection and serious research, as well as rigorous experimentation with materials and techniques," Jim Casper writes.
  • Suzanne Sease features Neighborhood Noir, the personal project of Art Streiber. "Late at night, if you look at the houses, streetlights and silhouetted palm trees on our block in Los Angeles, you could get the impression that it's 1947 -- that our street is a film noir landscape," he says.
  • The Superb Owl Awards 2022 Shortlist has been announced. Jake Ryan has selected the top 10 entries from each category. (If you missed the reference, it honors a common typo for this Sunday's NFL championship.)
  • The Phoblographer interviews three people who specialize in Camera Customization by "giving old cameras a brand new look by overhauling their exterior." And they all know each other.
  • In Do We Know What Ancient Romans Looked Like? Getty curator Jens Daehner reminds us that before there was photography, there were portraits.

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