Maira Kalman, "Blue Wall/Red Hair" (2004)/Julie Saul Gallery
Alec Soth, "New Orleans, Louisiana" (2003)
I was pleasantly surprised to see this cool illustration of one of Alec Soth's photos in the August 2 issue of The New Yorker. But then I was appalled to realize that neither The New Yorker nor the illustrator credited Soth as the originator of the image.
When I asked Alec Soth about it, he wrote back:
"The New Yorker did call and ask for permission regarding the Kalman
illustration. I said it was okay. But it would have been nice to have
received a little credit. Oh well."
What an easy-going, good-natured guy.
