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 Blaustein at SFMOMA and Pier 24, Sony E-Mount lenses, Oscar Gustav Rejlander and the Tony Awards Red Carpet.

  • Jonathan Blaustein follows his 'About Time: Photography in a Moment of Change' at SFMOMA with a visit to see 'Collected' at Pier 24. Lavishly illustrated, too.
  • Amadou Diallo recommends The First Sony E-Mount Lenses You Should Buy. The latest update adds new wide-angle and portrait picks, with real-world images shot with each lens.
  • In Full of Mind, Francis Hodgson shows a selection of Oscar Gustav Rejlander's images from the mid-1860s. The National Portrait Gallery in London acquired the album when it was recently put up for auction. A contemporary review said of Rejlander's photos, "Of Mr.Rejlander's pictures (for such we may justly call them), we have no hesitation in saying that they are full of beauty and full of mind."
  • There are 46 images of The Arrivals at the 2016 Tony Awards Red Carpet. "The most common accessory was a silver ribbon, worn in memory of the victims [of the Orlando massacre]," the piece notes.

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