At the Opening of Aperture: Photographs
This past Monday photographers and friends of Aperture gathered at the 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery for the opening of Aperture: Photographs, a unique exhibition gathering decades of Aperture’s history into one space. The photographs draw from Aperture’s print and fundraising programs from more than fifty years by more than forty photographers. The exhibition spans from classic works by the likes of Robert Capa, Dorothea Lange, W. Eugene Smith, Edward Steichen, and Paul Strand to contemporary photographers who work with Aperture today including LaToya Ruby Frazier, Richard Misrach, James Mollison, David Benjamin Sherry, and Penelope Umbrico, along with many more.
The exhibition will be on view Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m through September 18. Aperture: Photographs is sponsored by the 1285 Avenue of the Americas Art Gallery, in partnership with Jones Lang LaSalle, as a community-based public service.
