A story in the Guardian on the Getty Museum, though it’s hardly the only major museum in the world with this prob­lem. SAFE points to the LA Times which has another story, Getting it right at the Getty, talk­ing about the issue.

One you probably won’t see in the papers


Efrosyni and Me
Efrosyni (right) and Me.

Had my photo taken with Efrosyni for a Greek paper, Ta Nea, yes­ter­day. I’m the one on the left in glasses. We’re fre­quently con­fused for one another. Not by any­one who’s met us both I should add, but for some reason we both get called Efrosyni if she or I gives a paper on our work separately.

The one they’ll prob­ably use is one without the glasses. Though you still can’t see my eyes as they’re nearly closed in the bright sunlight.
