    French photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue was well known in art circles for his slightly surreal unforced photographs taken in the early part of the twentieth century. Less known is his later work, the subject of an insightful exhibition curated by Paul Smith at London's Michael Hoppen Gallery through to 28 July. Get in the picture on It's Nice That.

  • Pulp Fiction

    Gloria Stoll Karn's career as a successful 1940s pulp fiction may never have been if it weren't for a keen eyed janitor saving her sketches from an incinerator. Check out her beautiful images in Hyperallergic's article about her life in a male-dominated world or head to the Norman Rockwell Museum for her full profile. It's a great story.

  • Africa Calling

    Three exhibitions in Amsterdam are shining the light on Africa's approach to fashion from mid last century to now and beyond. First up is Foam where Seydou Keïta's wonderful black and white Bamako Portraits are showing through to 20 June 2018.

Taking an in-depth look at the flourishing streetwear and couture scenes in multiple African countries is Fashion Cities Africa, a show full of vim and vigour at the Tropen Museum where
