Happy New Year! The January 2022 Snap Shots features a Zoom presentation by Lev Sakin, noted optical designer and engineer, for the January 9, 2022, meeting. Sakin’s career includes working at LOMO in St. Petersburg, Russia; General Scientific in Ann Arbor, MI; and in Wilton, CT, where he co-founded Optical Design Associates. If you’re curious about lenses, this is a special opportunity to learn from an expert. Other Snap Shots items: a detailed follow-up article by PHSNE member Mark Kronquist on building a replica Ur-Leica ‘O’; a new film photography workshop in Amherst, New Hampshire, founded by glass dry-plate entrepreneur Jason Lane (May 2019 Snap Shots); an item on the Afghan “box” cameras; and two book reviews.
