Cole is Emeritus Professor of Art History in the Department of the History of Art and Architecture at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The collection in ARTstor will consist of Cole’s field photography, which depicts African art, architecture, sites, and culture from Nigeria, Ghana, the Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, and Kenya. Also included are photographs taken by Cole of African objects in private collections around the world.
