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 June Newton, the Pixel Stick, Cindy Sherman, three dimensionality, Asian photographers and Fabian Oefner's Leica M6.

  • The Guardian presents a few of portraits by Acclaimed Photographer June Newton who passed away earlier this month.
  • Kevin Raber was Having Fun With the Pixel Stick and took a video to prove the images weren't 'shopped. "Each one of pixelstick's 200 LEDs acts like a pixel on a screen, displaying your image one vertical line at a time as you walk," the Pixel Stick site explains. "These vertical lines, when captured by a long exposure, combine to recreate your image in mid air, leaving pixelstick (and the person using it) invisible." It's a $349 gadget.
  • Mike Johnston asks, What Does Cindy Sherman Look Like? And answers the question, which actually came from a reader.
  • Jim Kasson tackles a couple of theories about Three Dimensionality and Sensor Format with four scenes at two sensor sizes, both of which provide some sense of depth. "I see very little differences between the two formats," he writes.
  • The Phoblographer highlights Eight Amazing Asian Photographers to Learn From to celebrate Asian history month.
  • Grace Ebert presents a few of Fabian Oefner's sculptural series of Everyday Objects sliced and reassembled into sculpture. But the reason we're pointing them out is that one of them is a Leica M6. Perfect for the Shaking Man.

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