Aperture: The Magazine of Photography and Ideas “On Feminism” The winter issue of Aperture, “On Feminism,” arrives at a moment when the power and influence women hold on the world stage is irrefutable, and the very idea of gender is central to conversations about equality across the country, and around the globe. “On Feminism” focuses on intergenerational dialogues, debates, and strategies of feminism in photography and considers the immense contributions by artists whose work articulates or interrogates representations of women in media and society. Across more than one hundred years of photographs and images, “On Feminism” underscores how photography has shaped feminism as much as how feminism has shaped photography.

Aperture: The Magazine of Photography and Ideas “Sounds” This issue delves into the relationship between sound and image. How have photographers drawn inspiration from music? How have cultures of image making developed in tandem with music making? Whether capturing an intoxicating performance, or individuals lost in dance or caught in an ecstatic moment of listening, photographs give form to the ways sounds move us. This issue’s features include a profile on William Eggleston and his long-standing passion for music, a conversation with Vancouver-based photo-conceptualist Stan Douglas, a remembrance of the legendary Malian photographer Malick Sidibé, a look at underground rave culture in the 1990s, plus much more.
