Who Owns Seydou Keïta?


General Photography

I’m usually reluctant to link to articles in New York Times for a large variety of reason, some of which have to do with the links themselves. First, you have to register (which I, frankly, find annoying) and second, after a while, the articles disappear in their archives, which you can only read if you pay for it (ditto). But this article about an African photographer whose work the art world turned into a hot (well, actually only somewhat warm) commodity is quite interesting and - unlike many of the Times’ other stuff - not too wordy and meandering.
