New Haven Independent—The overwhelming first impression of Sheri Schwarz’s painting Sarugaku is of panic, limbs flailing, mouths open in screams. Because it’s part of “#Unload: Pick Up The Pieces” — the new exhibit at the Ely Center of Contemporary Art on Trumbull Street, running through November 11 — you’d be excused for looking for the guns, the blood, the signs of injury. The actual subject matter is chilling in a different way.
Big cameras and big rivalries take center stage at Photokina. Photokina is underway in London and the theme of the show is "large." Unusually for an industry that is trending towards the compact, the cameras on stage at this show sport big sensors, big lenses, and big price tags. But though they may not be for the average shooter, these cameras are impressive pieces of hardware that hint at things to come for the industry as a whole.
