The studio photographer Seydou Keita (1921-2001) began his career in 1945 in Bamako, French Sudan (now Mali). Although Keita was self-taught, he established a strong reputation and people traveled miles to visit his studio. There are incredible textiles documented in these and many more of his pictures, not to mention the people.

We all look at the same stars. I saw Gulumbu's work at the Quay Branley Museum in Paris. Then I saw it again last year when Annie brought prints down from Arnhem land, and I loved her stars. It's hard to find pictures of them. Gulumbu Yunupingu passed away this week. R.I.P.
