Dear Photo Teachers,

Many of you might be interested in this New York Times article:

'Snap Judgments'
Colorful and Clashing: Looking at Africa
You do have to subscribe to read the article.... it is FREE. There are
three Arts articles every day.


"The first, "In/Sight: African Photographers, 1940 to the Present,"
appeared at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in 1996. It was
fantastic, a revelation. Now, a decade later, the second one has
arrived, "Snap Judgments: New Positions in Contemporary African
Photography" at the International Center of Photography. It, too, is
fantastic stimulating, astringent, brimming with life and
different from its predecessor."

One of the photographs shown appears to be a transfer of some kind to
hand made paper. The image is very light.

Here is more information on the Exhibit:
"Snap Judgments: New Positions in Contemporary African Photography"
continues through May 28 at the International Center of Photography,
1133 Avenue of the Americas, at 43rd Street, (212) 857-0000 or
Catalog of exhibit will be available in April.
