The February 2021 Snap Shots newsletter is packed with photo history. This month’s Zoom meeting hosts Seattle-based curator Nicolette Bromberg’s presentation on “East Becoming West,” the story behind the Seattle Camera Club, founded in the 1920s by Japanese-American citizens, who were very successful Pictorialist photographers, and were later prohibited from taking photographs after being sent to internment camps at the start of World War II. Other items: a short, colorful history of the View-Master; a special dictionary, which is also a camera; a celebration of authors who photograph, including Nobel Prize winner Orhan Pamuk (above, from his book Orange); and a very special camera spotted at a very special event.
