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 Dorothea Lange, photos of Deadheads, moving from Canon to Pentax and Moment 2.0.
- In Dorothea Lange Photos Lead Historians to Japanese Camp Survivors, Chloe Veltman recounts how Michael Williams and Richard Cahan tracked down camp survivors for their book of 200 images and stories titled Un-American: The Incarceration of Japanese Americans During World War Two. Tim Chambers writes more on Lange's Censored Photographs and Denso provides more background information on the camps.
- Rian Dundon found a few photos from 30 Years on Tour With the Grateful Dead by various photographers. Deadheads, he writes, "were an economy and culture unto themselves -- a community of idealists run on veggie burritos and bong hits."
- In Canon: It's Been a Good Run, Derrick Story replaces his 5D Mark II with a Pentax KP. "What I like about this transition is that my dSLR gear is better aligned with my Micro Four Thirds kit," he writes.
- Moment 2.0 is a Kickstarter project for a battery case, phone case and cinema wide lens for iPhone photographers. The battery case accepts Moment's lenses, as does the phone case.
