The Magazine of Photography and Ideas

How do homes serve as emblems of a moment, markers of the past, or articulations of future possibilities? The Spring 2020 issue of Aperture considers the meanings and forms of domestic spaces, and the relationships between architecture, design, and photography.

“House & Home” is on newsstands March 10.
