Corrections for the Week of August 5 

Photographer mix-up, the name of a Best Of winner, and a photo credit.

In our July 15 "Best Of the East Bay" issue, in selecting the East Bay's "Best Photographer," we confused two outstanding photographers, both named Mark Read, erroneously assuming that one busy person had created two complementary bodies of work. The Berkeley fine-art photographer (, who showed recently in Open Studios, and the English social documentarian ( are both remarkable and well-respected talents. While we wrote about the humanist journalism of the latter, we also admire the breathtaking landscapes of the former. That Read's work is on display at Red Oak Realty, at 1891 Solano Ave. in Berkeley, through November.

In the same issue, we also got the name wrong of the John F. Kennedy University Center for Holistic Counseling, which won Best Cheap Counseling.

In the July 22 lit preview on Summer Brenner, the accompanying photograph should have been attributed to Phoebe Wong.
