Anniversary issue features seven original commissions by leading photographers and artists, and seven essays about Aperture's legacy by award-winning writers and critics
This fall, Aperture celebrates seventy years in print with an issue that explores the magazine's past while charting its future. Reflecting on the founding editors' original mission and drawing on Aperture's global community of photographers, writers, and thinkers, this issue features seven original artist commissions as well as seven essays by some of the most incisive writers working today--each engaging with the magazine's archive in distinct ways.
Looking back upon Aperture's legacy, Darryl Pinckney reconsiders the photographer and editor Minor White, whose vision shaped the magazine for nearly two decades, beginning in the 1950s. Olivia Laing writes about the 1960s and the tensions between reportage and artistry in the work of Dorothea Lange, W. Eugene Smith, and others. Geoff Dyer revisits to the 1970s, which he considers a decade of new ideas and deeper reflection on the medium, looking into the works of William Eggleston and Ralph Eugene Meatyard. Brian Wallis looks back at the politics, art, identity, and the "culture wars" of the 1980s, while Susan Stryker reflects on Aperture's archive from the 1990s and its foregrounding of identity beyond the gender binary, evoking Catherine Opie, Elaine Reichek, and Aperture's pathbreaking "Male/Female" issue. Lynne Tillman illustrates how photographers searched for the tangible in an increasingly digital world in the 2000s, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Salamishah Tillet shows how the photo album became a source of connection and narrative amid the information overabundance of the 2010s.
