•  80-year-old photographer Hamidou Maiga has been doing studio photography since the 1950s, documenting villagers, dignitaries and artists in Mali in West Africa. Only now are his photos getting attention from the western world, including his first solo exhibit in London. He said: “I became well known in these parts – everyone knew my name. The studio became a site where people would meet and exchange ideas.” [Dazed Digital

•  I don’t know jump shots, but Sports Illustrated’s cover shot of BYU’s Jimmer Fredette is apparently pretty awesome. [The Dagger]

•  Guillaume Janot’s series, “Welcome Home,” captures scenes at a Beijing Ikea. By way of explanation, Ikea is more of a destination than an errand in Beijing, and visitors  might spend the day chatting on the furniture or even sleeping on the beds. [ARTINFO

•  A selection of some of the many front pages all over the world that featured Reuters photographer Goran Tomasevic’s striking shot of a convoy explosion in Libya. [Reuters]

•  YouTube knows not everyone has access to a camera, so they’re launching a portal (at YouTube.com/create) where you can build a video clip by using third-party apps. [TechCrunch]
