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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Thomas Struth, McCurry on Gula, "creative documentary photography" and the winners of Nikon's 2016 Photomicrography Competition.

  • In Photography Writ Large: The Monumental Art Of Thomas Struth, Susan Stamberg talks to German art photographer Thomas Struth about his images currently on display in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
  • In Sharbat Gula: The iconic face of the refugee struggle, Emily Ragobeer interviews Steve McCurry about the plight of the green-eyed girl arrested in Pakistan last week. "The only thing I want is for justice to be done, and for her to be treated in a respectful and dignified way," he says.
  • "In October 2017 there will be a new contest for creative documentary photography," the World Press Association announced in a listing of new programs for 2017. "This contest will be for professional visual storytellers who, in wanting to communicate about actual people, events or issues, deploy creative techniques in constructing, processing and presenting images. This contest will not have rules limiting how images are produced and will not have categories."
  • Nikon has posted the winners of its 2016 Photomicrography Competition. First place was awarded to Oscar Ruiz, second to Douglas Moore and third to Rebecca Nutbrown. The site includes images from all 20 winners, honorable mentions and images of distinction.
