Fans of once-in-a-lifetime gymnast Simone Biles are over the moon that Biles
is on the cover of the August issue of Vogue, but as for the actual photo,
not so much.

Several critics on Twitter (including New York Times national picture editor
Morrigan McCarthy) took shots at the dimly lit images of Biles inside and out
by famous photog Annie Leibovitz and suggested that Vogue should have used a
black photographer (and hire more black photographers in general), or at the
very least find someone who better understands black skin tones.

Perhaps there would be less criticism if the images of Ms Biles has looked more like the cover of Vanity Fair.  https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4504482
