Announcing the 2015 Summer Open
For this year’s Summer Open, Aperture’s annual open-call exhibition, we asked photographers to consider the ways in which our current reality might outpace outlandish narratives of science fiction. The twenty-four projects here, culled from more than 500 and representing diverse subjects and photographic approaches, reflect our current moment. Their concerns run the gamut, from how technology increasingly permeates daily life to off-the-grid communities, the misused landscape, utopian architecture, and the vocabularies of science and science fiction, among other concerns.
Included are photographers Farah Al Qasimi, Fabrizio Albertini, Emmanuelle Andrianjafy, Tine Bek, Arnau Blanch, Anaïs Boileau, Philippe Braquenier, Antoine Bruy, Felix R. Cid, Ben Freedman, Yaeli Gabriely, Alexander Gehring, Aras Gökten, Jeremy Haik, Balarama Heller, Klara Källström and Thobias Fäldt, Vivienne Luo Wang, Jim Mangan, Sarah Meyohas, Dylan Nelson, Brandon Nichols, Eva O’Leary, Martine Stig, and Monika Sziladi.
The exhibition will open on July 16 at Aperture Gallery in New York.
