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 Japanese-American photography, Sharon Harris, a Texas Leica, the most rented products and USB-C untangled.

  • Forgotten Japanese American Photography features pre-war pictorialist images on display at Laurence Miller Gallery in New York. "Due to the tremendous loss of material and documentation from the era, the contributions of Japanese Americans to the development of art photography in the U.S. were vastly underestimated in early histories," the liner notes observer.
  • Dahlia Ambrose presents the Surreal Photographs With Pinhole Cameras shot by Sharon Harris. "My work is centered around the female figure captured in unusual environments. The figures are solitary, adrift in their private realities, unaware of the viewer," Harris, who makes her own pinhole cameras, says.
  • Mike Johnston tells My 6x9 Story, a whopper about trying to use a Texas Leica discreetly. You might as well wear a view camera as an earring.
  • LensRentals lists its Most Rented New Photo & Video Products of 2021. Heavy on the video equipment. But then movie production is ephemeral in a way still photography is not. So why buy when you can rent?
  • In Untangling the Rat's Nest of USB-C Standards and Cables, Glenn Fleishman takes on the herculean task with candor and clarity. We bookmarked this one.

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