Celso Gonzalez-Falla / FOREWORD Dear Friends, It has been sixty years since Minor White, Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Nancy and Beaumont Newhall, and others led the creation of the first issue of Aperture magazine—to promote interest in, advance, and debate about photography. Since that day, the medium has been on an extraordinary journey. In 1952 photography was not considered an art form. Today it is very much recognized as a fine art—in part, because of the work of those who started Aperture Foundation. Collectors and museums treasure their photographs, many of which were taken or inspired by the original Aperture founders. Thanks to digital technology, cell phones, and the Internet, photography is an everyday language that billions use for daily communication. Aperture Foundation has made and will continue to make a significant impact on photographic consciousness. We celebrate this accomplishment, and have an opportunity to reflect on what has happened with photography, and what our future might be. There have been dramatic changes in the way we take images, share them, and publish the results of our work. Publishing photography also has changed dramatically and will continue to change. We need to draw inspiration from the vision of our founders to adapt to the new reality. The reasons for the creation of Aperture are every bit as relevant today. We must—as they had to— understand, navigate, and shape this new exciting landscape. We thank Aperture’s founders. We cannot overstate our appreciation for their vision and commitment. We strive to uphold and advance their legacy. We also thank Paul Strand and his wife Hazel for their immense contribution to Aperture. We thank the late Michael Hoffman, who led Aperture for thirty-five years and made us America’s leading photobook publisher. It is not possible to name the hundreds of individual photographers—many featured through their work in this catalog—whose contributions have defined Aperture, but please know that your work continually touches and inspires us in countless ways. When we celebrate Aperture, it is your vision, talents, and work that we celebrate. We also thank the hundreds of writers, editors, patrons, and subscribers who have been equally important members of our community. I know that many of you have played a direct role in shaping and supporting Aperture. We owe you a great debt of gratitude. Let us celebrate Aperture’s sixtieth anniversary, and, together, look forward to an exciting future. Sincerely,

Celso Gonzalez-Falla

Ansel Adams, one of Aperture’s founders and a visionary figure in the history of photography, was a master technician of the fine art print, helping bring recognition to photography as an art form and creating a body of work that would become the primary record of many of the country’s national parks, including Yosemite, where this image was taken. A close friend of both Minor White and Nancy Newhall (two other Aperture founders), Adams contributed both artistic and pragmatic leadership to the magazine’s early days—he frequently wrote for the publication, contributed photographs for reproduction, and even helped secure sponsorship from Polaroid, which was for many years one of the few advertisers featured in Aperture’s pages. estimated retail value :

With a photographic career that spans more than fifty years, Barbara Crane has employed many formats and materials, continually experimenting with new ways of image-making and seeing. Private Views, published by Aperture in 2009, is concerned with intimacy, human gestures, and interaction, and was shot in the early 1980s during Chicago’s many summer festivals. Crane created the series using Polaroid film and an on-camera flash; the two images included here are unique prints that capture the unmatchable pop of both 1980s fashion and Polaroid’s exceptional color palette. estimated retail value :

Epstein is now widely regarded as one of the key figures of documentary art photography in America, and this early publication reflects his interest in bold color and composition as a means to communicate social conditions, both as they are written on the landscape and in the gestures and faces of people he encountered. estimated retail value :

Aperture was the first to publish a monograph collecting Model’s best photographs. Lisette Model (1979) was designed by Marvin Israel, with a preface by Berenice Abbott.

Andrew Moore often addresses the decline of cities and the costs of modernization in his large-scale color photography. In his Detroit series, from which this image was chosen, Moore captures the American city following the downfall of the auto industry after World War II and presents the details of a metropolis in ruins, more often than not devoid of the presence of people. A selection of work from Detroit appeared in Aperture magazine in 2009. estimated retail value :

printed by sal lopez for the aperture founders and friends portfolio

In the mid-1930s photographer Barbara Morgan, one of the founding members of Aperture, moved to New York, where she met the dancer Martha Graham. Morgan began what would become a major artistic collaboration, photographing Graham and her company in the controlled environment of her studio, each picture intended to capture the most vital moments of movement in the dance. Morgan is perhaps best known for her photographs of dancers, but she experimented with many different formats and styles, and she also painted. Aperture magazine published a monographic issue of her work in 1964 and she is included in the Masters of Photography book series. estimated retail value :

A documentary photographer committed to challenging the visual codes associated with photojournalism, Richard Mosse is now best-known for his body of work, Infra, his first monograph, published by Aperture in 2012. (This work first appeared in the magazine in 2011.) Infra’s scenes from the conflict in the Congo were recorded on infrared film, which is normally used for the purpose of surveillance. The challenging realism of his remarkable large-scale prints, with their palette of pinks, has helped establish Mosse as a powerful voice in contemporary photography. In 2013, one of the films Mosse shot as part of this project will represent Ireland at the Venice Biennale. estimated retail value :

In 1983 Aperture formally merged with the Paul Strand Foundation to create the Paul Strand Archive, which consists of the entire life’s work of one of the key figures of twentieth-century photography and art. Today, Aperture works in partnership with the Philadelphia Museum of Art (the new home of the Paul Strand Collection) to protect and promote his legacy. Aperture has published numerous books, among them Paul Strand: Sixty Years of Photographs (1976), Un Paese: Portrait of an Italian Village (1997), Southwest (2004), Paul Strand in Mexico (with Fundación Televisa, 2010), and The Garden at Orgeval (2012). The series of notable portraits Strand made of his first wife Rebecca Salsbury was created over the span of more than a decade, and is the only instance in his career where he used his photography to investigate the components of a personal and intimate relationship. estimated retail value :

Charis Wilson, depicted in this iconic image, was Weston’s wife and muse. For many of his contemporaries, Weston epitomized the “fine art photographer,” and as curator Peter Bunnell notes in Photography PastForward, the celebration of Aperture’s fiftieth anniversary, Minor White and those around him firmly believed that, “if you sat down for an hour and looked at a great photograph such as Weston’s Pepper No. 30, or a Siskind or a Sommer print, you’d be changed, and you’d be changed for the better.” estimated retail value :
