50th Anniversary, Part 1
Issues 168 and 169 of Aperture feature excerpts and page spreads from fifty years of issues and books, which reveal how Aperture, in all of its projects, has continuously rethought and reinterpreted the varied aesthetic and social paths set forth by the Founders. Featured artists in Part 1 include: Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Bruce Davidson, Mitch Epstein, Nan Goldin, Philip Jones Griffiths, Eikoh Hosoe, Dorothea Lange, Robert Mapplethorpe, Sally Mann, Mary Ellen Mark, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Duane Michals, Tina Modotti, Pierre et Gilles, Sebasti‹o Salgado, Stephen Shore, W. Eugene Smith, Thomas Struth, Robert Rauschenberg, Gerhard Richter, Minor White, Garry Winogrand, and many more.
These two special anniversary issues trace Aperture's history as well as the currents in photography that have brought the medium to its present status as one of the most important art forms—and arguably the most powerful medium of communication. True to Aperture's history of providing a vital sounding board for a vast community of thinkers on photography, both anniversary issues include texts excerpted from past volumes, as well as an in-depth chronicle of the magazine's history by longtime contributor, R. H. Cravens.
