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. This time we look at Malick Sidibe, Seattle, working as a pro, Affinity Spotlight and a photography book sale.

  • Miss Rosen presents a selection of Malick Sidibe's images of post-colonial Mali. "Honing in on the youth culture of the times, he captured the joyous energy of the first generation of liberated Malians on the beach, in the clubs, at sporting events and in his studio. In every photograph he created he found the heart and the soul of his people and the result was nothing short of beautiful," she writes.
  • Alan Taylor, traveling for several days, resorts to his own camera for 18 images of A Sunny Seattle Day, his former home town.
  • In Counterpoint (And Some Casteneda), Mike Johnston adds Kirk Tuck and Carlos Casteneda to the discussion about How to Become a Professional Photographer.
  • Affinity has launched Affinity Spotlight, a new site with "features on artists and photographers using Affinity, tutorials on how to get the best from the apps, behind-the-scenes insight or news and updates."
  • Friends of the San Francisco Public Library are offering a 30 percent discount on art and photography books at the Readers Bookstore at Fort Mason through Sunday. It's always a healthy collection, including some collectibles, at modest prices.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
