@mystikmind,
Taking a picture is not like robbing people. Calm down.

@mystikmind,
Thinking about it, maybe you're right. What's important is not the color of the skin of the photographer. Rather, what matters is 1) the connection, rapport or chemistry between the photographer and his subject, and 2) the subject's desire to be photographed.

One of the first African studio photographers, Seydou Keïta was born in Bamako in 1921. He set up his first studio in 1948.

@Pamela Rosa,
"The above figure is from a preprint (updated from last year), Recovering signals of ghost archaic introgression in African populations."

That is the sole reference to the word "ghost" in the entire article. One would properly wonder WTF the author thinks he is talking about.

The word "species" appears just once, referring to the title of another article. One would wonder WTF you think you are talking about.

And just because you babble something over and over, that does not make it right or even sensible. All mankind is a single species. You apparently have no clue about what the word means.

@mystikmind,
Thanks. I think you made a good point. It made me reflect about my own experience. I have done quite a few photos in Africa, and once in a while I found myself taking series of pics of people (often kids) who would line up to be photographed and then marvel at their own picture on the lcd screen. And there's magic sparkling in those pictures, because the subject WANTS to be photographed, rather than merely AGREES to be photographed. And yet I'm white...

@Olivier5,
Its a novelty for them!
But as far as i am aware, photography can become a sensitive issue relating to culture.... but never about race, although the line between culture and race is often blurred because of the different perspectives culture creates.

@mystikmind,
It’s also the excitment to see your own picture, the desire to be beautifully represented.

@Olivier5,
Don't worry about it.... There are too many dimwits here who dont understand the thumb system is there to opinion the post. Instead, they think it is about giving an opinion on the person making the post.

@mystikmind,
I'm not worried, I just like to pat the thumb monkey on the back when it comes around. It's my way to give it a banana.
