Elements of Style


Aperture’s “Elements of Style” issue investigates the role of style, dress, and beauty in the formation of individual identity. From the stunning studio work of Kwame Brathwaite, the Harlem-based photographer who advanced the potent political slogan “Black Is Beautiful,” to Collier Schorr’s representations of the queer community in fashion contexts, to Pieter Hugo’s portraits of young students at a Beijing art school, this issue reveals, across time and geographies, how fashion and style help us to see who we are and who we might become.
