Aperture sponsored a symposium—Photography: 1982—at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California from November 7 through 12. The purpose of this gathering was to bring together artists, writers, editors, and other members of the creative community whose views and experience would stimulate, renew, and broaden the dialogue within and beyond the photography community. The following presents an edited transcription of some of the work, issues, and discussions presented by the sixteen individuals who accepted our invitation to Esalen. It is hoped that this record of our exchange will offer new directions for the future of the medium.
