UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF APERTURE

For the current show “Aperture Remix: A 60th Anniversary Celebration,” the curator Lesley A. Martin commissioned ten contemporary photographers, including Rinko Kawauchi, Vik Muniz, Martin Parr, Doug Rickard, and Alec Soth, to create photographs in response to an Aperture publication they felt most influenced their development as artists. “I wanted to reflect the wide and varied range of contemporary photographic practices and to select artists working at the top of their game within their particular niche,” Martin says. The show runs through Saturday at Aperture before it goes on the road internationally. Click here to view more photographs.
