What is Clipped Highlights?

Clipped Highlights will send out a weekly, free newsletter every Wednesday. It will highlight the top stories from the week, and tell you why. This newsletter is different from our daily news brief in that it provides unique insights that can only be found in Clipped Highlights.

In addition to unique takes on the biggest stories in photography, art, and technology, Clipped Highlights will also serve to feature at least one photo series or art project that we think is worth your time to check out. In the imaging and technology space, we often focus only on the how rather than the what. It’s as vital, if perhaps more important than ever, to see the work of photographers all over the globe as well as to recognize the innovative technologies that make that art possible.

If this kind of content sounds like something you’re interested in, we encourage you to subscribe to the free Clipped Highlights newsletter today. You can read this week’s edition right here, no subscription necessary, to make sure it’s something you want in your inbox.

We’ll also make sure to share each edition of Clipped Highlights here on PetaPixel so if you aren’t a fan of email, you won’t be forced to miss out on the weekly newsletter.
