On Monday, October 28th, 2013, over 500 guests in the worlds of photography, art, fashion, media, and music gathered for the Aperture 1/1 Benefit and Auction, a one-of-a-kind party in support of Aperture Foundation’s education and visual-literacy programming. Headlining the event was Albert Hammond, Jr. performing songs from his new EP, AHJ. Other special guests included Henry Wolfe and Phil Carluzzo who performed an original score to Manhatta, the 1921 short film by Paul Strand and Charles Sheeler, and TAMARYN who performed a special guest DJ set. Throughout the night, a video installation created for Aperture by Trollbäck + Company lit up the room.

A live auction of 1/1 commissioned photographs was led by charity auctioneer CK Swett of Heritage Auctions, and included works by photographers Erwin Olaf, Mickalene Thomas, and Penelope Umbrico. Aperture’s Instagram silent auction was curated by Kathy Ryan, director of photography at the New York Times Magazine and featured over 80 works by notable figures such as Sam Falls, Alex Prager, Vik Muniz, Stephen Shore, and Tabitha Soren, as well as actress Tilda Swinton.
