Taliban as Boy George; Frozen photos; more

Magnum photographer Thomas Dworzak has posted a fascinating 7-minute look at the Taliban & photography.  Their religious beliefs led them to deface any human or animal representation (from ancient statues to bottles of shampoo), yet numerous young men posed for images that make them look "like gay icons."  Western reactions say something about our times, too.

New Photoshop Hall of Fame inductees

It’s great to see that two very worthy guys–Andrew Rodney & Kevin Connor–have been inducted into the Photoshop Hall of Fame.  Andrew has been helping mere mortals untangle color management issues for years, and Kevin (boss’s boss to yours truly) has been guiding the Photoshop ship since version 4.0. 

[Kevin’s headshot on Photoshop News apparently comes from his “Young Seinfeld” period. ;-)  He now looks a bit more like this.  Oddly enough, Google Images pulls up evidence of a possible horrifying past career (scroll to the bottom of the poster)–maybe something to discuss at our next 1:1.]

In any case, congrats to both Andrew and Kevin.  The honor couldn’t be more deserved.
