On September 18, Aperture trustees, friends, editors, and artists gathered at soon-to-open Selina in West Chelsea to celebrate the launch of Aperture magazine’s “Mexico City” issue, illuminating the ways Mexican photographers are pushing new visions in the medium.

The night began with an intimate Mexican-themed seated dinner, paired with specialty cocktails by Yola Mezcal. Aperture magazine editor Michael Famighetti gave a toast and welcomed visiting artists featured in the issue, including Iñaki Bonillas, Pablo López Luz, and Mayra Martell—who were all provided accommodations at Selina during the festivities. “The ‘Mexico City’ issue is part of a series of city-based issues that we do, which is about expanding our purview and bringing new people into Aperture’s community,” said Michael. Surrounding Aperture staff were contributors to the magazine’s most recent issue, including Elena Navarro and Andrea Celda—who was introduced and thanked by Chris Boot, Aperture’s executive director. Also in attendance were Sarah Hermanson Meister, Dolph Hogewoning, Christoph Wiesner, Artur Walther, and Whit Williams, as well Aperture trustees Cathy Kaplan, Hemant Kanakia, Stuart Cooper, and Andrew Lewin.

Following dinner, guests made their way up to Selina’s rooftop lounge to join the after-party, where attendees enjoyed stunning views of the New York City skyline, accompanied by music by DJ Mateo López, elixirs by Madre Mezcal and Tito’s Handmade Vodka, and a selection of Mexican candies.
