A diverse compilation of images and writing, this 1st issue of the new Aperture signifies the magazine’s commitment to the remarkable range of cross-cultural experiences that photography addresses. From the stark isolation of Mimmo Jodices’s Mediterranean island landscapes to Julian Cardona’s disturbing photo-essay on foreign owned factories in Mexico, issue 159 presents a dynamic and vital window on the myriad happenings in the photographic community.
Other features in this issue include Neil Selkirk on designer Tibor Kalman’s use of photography, the photographic books of Jeff Bridges accompanied by a discussion between the artist and Richard Misrach, love letters to Edward Weston, the life and work of Marilyn Silverstone and an essay by Francine Prose on the phenomenon of the wedding ritual accompanied by the work of photographers as diverse as Henri Cartier-Bresson and William Wegman.
