In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at African photographers, image manipulation, Photoshop artboards and the new CMOA blog.

  • In Portrait of a Lady, Teju Cole explores the work of the Malian photographers Seydou Keïta, who "we now consider him a great African artist," and Malick Sidibé. Cole notes, "These photographs are ripostes to the anthropological images of 'natives' made by Europeans in the late 19th and early 20th centuries."
  • Ignacio Palacios takes up The Very Old Debate Of Image Manipulation, noting when it is not appropriate but concluding "for me creating an image with Photoshop is an adventure and an experiment and post-processing an image is a creative, artistic, personal and fulfilling experience."
  • Julieanne Kost explains why even photographers will appreciate Artboards in Photoshop CC. And she should know.
  • The Carnegie Museum of Art has launched the newly-redesigned CMOA Blog edited by Matthew Newton to tell "the stories of the museum's collection and those influenced and inspired by it."

More to come...
