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 Harvey Milk, David Johnson, a new pinhole camera, the popularity of printing photos and Berkeley Tuolumne Camp.

  • Harvey Milk: Messenger of Hope is an online photo exhibit of prints on exhibit at SFO celebrating the life of the assassinated San Francisco city supervisor who owned a camera shop in the Castro before running for office.
  • Christina Campodonico reviews the San Francisco City Hall exhibit of 65 photographs by David Johnson, Living Legend and Chronicler of Black S.F.. "Johnson, now 95, broke barriers as the first Black student of famed landscape photographer Ansel Adams at the California School of Fine Arts, now the San Francisco Art Institute, in the 1940s," she writes.
  • A New Pinhole Camera Is Bringing Unheard of Innovations and the Phoblographer interviews the inventor James Guerin to get the story. "I saw that because of the size of the canister and my 15mm focal distance that there was space in the camera to have a double 'film box' and that I could do a redscale side as well as a regular side," Guerin says. And that also permits double exposures mixing the two.
  • Dan Havlik cites a study that concludes Printing Photos Still Popular, especially with younger photographers. They are printing photos of people they know on home printers.
  • Kelly Sullivan photographed Berkeley Tuolumne Camp, a summer camp open to the public on the South Fork of the Tuolumne River just outside Yosemite, after a $2.7M rebuilding effort over almost nine years. Well, a person can dream, can't we?

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