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 Christmas lights, African-American photography, Willy Spiller and a LaserSoft deal.

  • It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas to Alan Taylor, who demonstrates the proposition with 35 photos from Europe to the Americas and Asia. And even under water.
  • In African-American History Seen Through an African-American Lens, James Estrin interview Rhea Combs, curator of photography and film at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C. There's also a fascinating slide show of 17 historical images. "Photography was speaking to and empowering African-American communities," she says, "but it was also creating a moment whereby the larger mainstream society had to recognize and confront that this group of citizens existed."
  • Brian Seibel presents a selection of Swiss photographer Willy Spiller's Images contrasting the East and West coasts in the 1970s and 1980s.
  • LaserSoft Imaging's Christmas Offer is offering 25 percent off its software products or €400 savings when you buy a scanner from the company. See the Products section of the site to order.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
