Mrs. Deane : nothing is too amazing to be true non-digitally manipulated hand print © Yaseen Al-Obeidy The Kuwait Weeks were born out of a conversation I had with Kuwaiti photographer Mohammed Alkouh, who is currently having a solo show at CAP Kuwait, which includes a number of his recent studio portraits. We talked about his encounters in the traditional portrait studios, which gave him the love for the hand-colored image, and how for him those photographs, like real life instances of Oscar Wilde’s pictures of Dorian Gray, contained the presence and the youth of a family member now in advanced age or even deceased. And how the vintage image has this mysterious time-warp quality that we cannot shake off or stop being fascinated by — an addiction merciless tapped into and catered to by several online platforms, numerous photo books, collections, some galleries, eBay sellers and auctioneers.

An Excerpt from McSweeney’s Next Issue, Josephine Rowe Illustration: Carson Murdach Do not adjust your set. What you see before you is an excerpt from the latest issue of McSweeney’s, our alluring, laid-back, westerly sister. Curiouser still, the McSweeney’s site has an excerpt from our new interview with Geoff Dyer. Have we gone mad? Yes, because we’re also offering an insane deal: a dual, twenty-percent-off subscription to both our magazines.
PhotoWings Here are some excerpts from this fascinating interview: Malcolm Daniel on our shared photographic heritage. From a historical standpoint, there are things to be learned from the past. From a more spiritual aspect, great works of art have the power to move us, whether they're made now or whether they were made 50 years ago, 100 years ago or 1,000 years ago or more. And so each time we lose something that has that power, we've lost an opportunity to be changed by it. Malcolm Daniel tells the story of his predecessor Maria Morris Hambourg's forthright job interview with Philippe de Montebello, then museum curator and director at The Met.
The Front Row April 18, 2014 The Secrets of Godzilla My artistic career was ended by Godzilla—as a child monster-movie maniac, I stopped attending painting classes when the long-awaited film (the American version, of course, starring Raymond Burr) showed up on Saturday-morning television. So I take the weeklong run of the Burr-free 1954 Japanese-language original, which begins today at Film Forum, personally. Liz Kuball › Blog I know, I know, you’re up to your ears in Kickstarter emails from photographers, and I feel you, I really do. But this one is different. My little sister, Cara, is part of a group called the New Craft Artists in Action (NCAA), based in Boston. That’s them above (Cara is the cute one in the orange scarf). NCAA designs and makes basketball nets and installs them on public courts across the country where nets are missing. Here’s a pic of a net Cara designed.
