Toronto. Another great issue of our newsletter from editor Sonja Pushchak and her team. Page 1, Electric Avenue, reviews the Victorian gadgets using electricity to improve a person’s health. My friend’s grandfather had an electric gadget that had hand grips and dials. It was supposed to improve health. Snake oil “doctors” would leap on every new scientific discovery and flog gadgets and nostrums “guaranteed” to cure/improve your ailment/health.
Page 2 covers Celio Barreto’s talk this month; Page 3 riffs off the talk by Louie Palu on war. War and Effect covers movies on the topic. After some PHSC posters on our auction and image show this month, David does an Equipment Review about LUTs, profiles, calibration, colour space, etc. to keep the colour of photos constant on the monitor, printer, and scanner. David stepped in to do Louise’s Web Links too – links to some images by George Hunter, Ilford’s latest stuff, and VueScan’s app he mentioned in the Equipment Review.
PHSC Presents highlights our coming events; Vi and Dot cover some ideas on clothing and counter culture; and this issue wraps up with the nifty “The Classifieds” page.
