Los Angeles

Aperture‘s “Los Angeles” issue explores how one of America’s most photographed cities is also an essential hub for some of today’s most important photography and photo-based art. Part of an ongoing series of issues that profile the photographic culture of a particular city, “Los Angeles” features key figures in the city’s photography community. Brand-new portfolios highlight Los Angeles’s unique conceptual traditions and, in some cases, consider the city as a studio. Including contributions by Janna Ireland, Carter Mull, Torbjørn Rødland, Guadalupe Rosales, Catherine Opie, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, and Lise Sarfati, “Los Angeles” captures the city’s historic and contemporary photographic vibrancy through enduring visual records of its landscape and communities.

“Los Angeles” is on newsstands September 4, 2018.
