Semiannual Benefactor Luncheon

Friday, June 2

12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Aperture Gallery and Bookstore 547 West 27th Street, 4th Floor New York, NY

Invitation Only

Members at the Benefactor Circle level ($2,500) or above are invited to join Aperture’s senior editor Denise Wolff for an afternoon of show-and-tell and discussion about the rich history of food in photographs from our forthcoming book, Feast for the Eyes: The Story of Food in Photography by Susan Bright.

Photographers, through a range of expressions, have depicted this most common of subjects, and the resulting works from the hilarious to the devastating hold our lives and times up to the light, forming the building blocks of culture and reflecting how we see ourselves.
