What Color is Your Aura?

Saturday, September 12

12:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Photoville Activity Tent Brooklyn Bridge Park Brooklyn, NY


Inspired by The Photographer’s Playbook: 307 Assignments and Ideas (Aperture, 2014), edited by Jason Fulford and Gregory HalpernAperture Foundation will be hosting an all-day “aura” portrait studio at Photoville, based on an assignment by photographer Bill Armstrong. Admission to Photoville is free.

For $15, participants will meet with an “aura consultant” to choose which colors best represent their aura. Then, during the studio session, they will pose for four photographs, to be made against the selected colors. Participants will be given a set of four aura portraits, so they can ultimately decide which image best captures their true aura.

The Photographer’s Playbook will be available for purchase, alongside other educational titles from Aperture. The Photographer’s Playdate assignment cards will also be on site; when participants complete a prompt from the book and post it online, their image will appear on Aperture’s Playdate Microsite.
