Profil

Aperture - a nonprofit foundation dedicated to promoting photography - was founded in 1952 by photographers Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Barbara Morgan, and Minor White; historian Beaumont Newhall; and writer/curator Nancy Newhall; as well as Melton Ferris, Ernest Louie, and Dody Warren. With scant resources, these visionary artists created a new quarterly periodical, Aperture, to serve photographers and photography enthusiasts worldwide. Aperture has maintained the founders’ spirit throughout its history—in terms of its editorial freedom, its experiential nature and the confluence of disparate sensibilities and approaches that may converge in any given issue of the magazine. The aim is to foster both the development and the appreciation of the medium and its practitioners.

 

In the 1960s, Aperture expanded to include the publication of books (over five hundred to date) that comprise one of the most comprehensive and innovative libraries in the history of photography and art. Aperture’s list of artists includes: Robert Adams, Diane Arbus, Robert Capa, Chuck Close, Bruce Davidson, Joan Fontcuberta, Nan Goldin, Josef Koudelka, Sally Mann, Mary Ellen Mark, Richard Misrach, Sebastião Salgado, Stephen Shore, Paul Strand, and Edward Weston, to name a few. Recent publications include: Richard Misrach: On the Beach; Paul Fusco: RFK; Gilbert & George: The Complete Pictures, 1971–2005; and Takashi Homma: Tokyo. Aperture’s programs also include limited-edition photographs, artist lectures and panel discussions, and a traveling exhibitions program that has presented shows at major museums and arts institutions in the United States and abroad.

 

In 2005, Aperture’s three-thousand-square-foot gallery opened in New York’s Chelsea art district. Since then, Aperture has exhibited an eclectic and critically acclaimed array of shows, including Nazar: Photographs from the Arab World; Joan Fontcuberta: Landscapes Without Memory; William Christenberry, Photographs: 1961–2005; A Couple of Ways of Doing Something, images by Chuck Close, poems by Bob Holman; Lisette Model and Her Successors; and the Lucie-nominated Invasion 68: Prague, photographs by Josef Koudelka.
