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 Light Microscopy Awards, Saul Leiter, Bryan Birks, Delphine Diallo, selecting layers and the Perseid Meteor Shower.

  • Jessica Stewart presents the winners of the Light Microscopy Awards. "The contest, which recognizes the best in scientific imaging worldwide, selected the winner from 640 images submitted by photographers and scientists from 38 countries," she writes.
  • Saul Leiter's Photos and Paintings, many unpublished, are on exhibit until Sept. 24 at Ls Rencontres d'Arles.
  • In Articles of Virtu, Magali Duzant features Bryan Birks's photographs of cars and their owners. ""A car can be a lot of things," Birks says. "It can be someone's main mode of transportation or it can be someone's shelter. I see it as a sense of hope."
  • Kate Mothes presents Delphine Diallo's portraits of Black Women in 'Highness'. "Captured in both color and black-and-white, the women are portrayed as timeless and noble, wearing body paint, jewelry and attire that draw on mythology and spiritual symbols to explore what the photographer calls the 'divine female body,'" she writes.
