Toronto. Well, it’s September already and the infamous COVID-19 pandemic is still with us!
Meantime, our editor extraordinaire, Sonja Pushchak, and her team have composed the first issue of PHSC News (20-03 – September 2020) after our non- break.
Page 1 covers Michael Wesely’s Stilleben (Still Life); followed by page 2 and a virtual rendering of “The 3D Wizardry of Mark Forbes” in place of the usual PHSC Presents. Page 3 takes a swipe at “LIFE magazine and the pandering of photography”; while page 4 promotes our very first Outdoor Auction (COVID-19 rules permitting, of course). Page 5 covers Phillipe Halsman’s Jump book and its relevance at the time. David reintroduces the legendary f/4 “Beer Can” zoom lens, followed by his trio of web links helping partner Louise.
Page 8 covers alternatives for our monthly meetings plus a note from Celio, our programme coordinator. On page 9, Vi and Dot are retired and replaced by Ivy & Izzy who talk about the works of Jerry Uelsmann. As usual, this issue wraps up with the classifieds on page 10.
