I was given the opportunity to look through the storage from Mr. Ninomiya's studio recently. It was an amazing 2 hours of looking through dust covered boxes that have been unmoved for maybe 20 years or more.
I saw more photos and negatives, correspondence, cameras, studio equipment, marketing materials like printed bags, frames, and correspondence. Just so much stuff there and I am hoping to have access to it all. Its my new goal to acquire.
We are getting more notice from local media here in Los Angeles for the project. As soon as I know when things will appear, I will post the locations and dates here.
We are mentioned rather nicely on this week's podcast from http://www.japancast.net and we are very thankful for that mention!

And download their podcast off of iTunes as well!
Short update today as I am working pretty diligently on research and learning new things about Mr Ninomiya that I did not know before.
