Photography Past/Forward: Aperture at Fifty
by Dorothea Lange
Publisher's Description
Founded in 1952, the name Aperture is synonymous with important, groundbreaking photography. The reputation of what began as a small journal devoted to the powerful medium of photography is now legendary-Aperture is virtually a cultural phenomenon in its own right. This important anthology is an examination by Aperture of its own history, a celebration of the unique influence it bears upon the practice of photography and how it has contributed to the respect that photography, as an art form and a means of communication, currently enjoys. Supplemental and historical texts have been gleaned from the pages of the magazine, including essays by Nancy and Beaumont Newhall, Danny Lyon, and Arthur Danto among others.
