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 Wildlife Photographer of the Year, the Denver protest shooting, Kevin Cummins, Sunset Blvd., Mark Rodriguez and a scam.

  • The Guardian has published winners of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2020 contest. Sergey Gorshkov's image of an Amur Tiger hugging an ancient Mancurian fir tree took top honors.
  • In A Frame by Frame Account of the Denver Protest Shooting, the Denver Post examines the contact sheet of Post photojournalist Helen Richardson who witnessed the shooting of Lee Keltner firsthand.
  • Damon Albarn in a Facemask is Kevin Cummins's best photograph. "He looks like he's shivering but I think it was a joke to fit with the face covering," he says. "Back then, it was really unusual to see a westerner wearing a mask."
  • Julie Jaskol has assembled Timeline: Explore a Changing Sunset Boulevard to accompany the Getty's release of Ed Rusha's 12 Sunsets as an interactive Web site.
  • In I've Fallen, and I Can't Get Up!, Mark Rodriguez promises "there are plenty of ways out there to jump start your inspiration and I'm here to share a few that have helped me find my mojo."
  • In Expert Advice: Photographer Scams, Varun Raghupathi shares the details of a fashion shoot scam by "Jack Moss" who targeted Wonderful Machine members. "We are sharing all the details here to help photographers stay alert and protect themselves against similar scams in the future," he writes.

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