    Aperture Gallery and Bookstore

    547 West 27th Street, 4th Floor

    New York,NY

    Join Aperture Foundation for the opening reception of the 2016 Portfolio Prize Winner Eli Durst. For his project, In Asmara, Durst traveled to Eritrea’s capital, famed for the world’s largest collection of modernist buildings. Captivated by the cinematic street life, however, he turned his camera to hidden details and chronicled the East African city in silvery duotone.

    Eli Durst (born in Austin, TX, 1989) graduated with a BA from Wesleyan University in 2011, where he majored in American studies and French studies. He then moved to New York, where he worked as an assistant to photographer Joel Meyerowitz and at the fine-art printing studio Griffin Editions. Durst earned an MFA in photography at the Yale School of Art in 2016.

    Aperture’s exhibitions are funded, in part, by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and Charina Endowment Fund, and with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
