    Richard Renaldi on Touching Strangers


    Join Aperture for a virtual artist talk with photographer Richard Renaldi, as he looks back at his 2014 project Touching Strangers in relation to the current pandemic. For Touching Strangers, Renaldi approached people who didn’t know each other to pose together for a portrait, asking them to physically interact for the frame. At a time when countries across the globe are practicing social distancing and people must keep six feet away from one another, how does this work take on a new meaning?

    Instagram Live: Ethan James Green


    Join Aperture magazine’s managing editor, Brendan Embser, for a conversation on Instagram Live with artist and photographer Ethan James Green. In 2017, Green’s portraits of downtown New York artists, models, queer youth, and muses to the fashion world and beyond were featured in Aperture magazine’s “Future Gender” issue, guest edited by Zackary Drucker. Last year, Aperture published Green’s first monograph, Young New York, a collection of fifty-five striking black-and-white portraits of Green’s friends and community, which brings to mind the luminous photography of David Armstrong and Diane Arbus.

    In this conversation, Green speaks about his recent commissions and covers for Vogue and Vanity Fair, his ongoing personal work, and the new landscape of fashion photography today.

    Ethan James Green (born in Caledonia, Michigan, 1990) moved to New York as a teenager to work as a model. As a photographer, he has been commissioned by publications such as Another ManDazed & ConfusedRe-EditionLove Magazinei-DArena Homme +Vogue ItaliaVogue Paris, and W, and fashion labels including Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, and Prada.
