In honor of its sixtieth anniversary, Aperture Foundation has published Aperture Magazine Anthology: The Minor White Years, 1952–1976, edited by the eminent photography historian Peter C. Bunnell. Join Bunnell and editor Diana C. Stoll for a conversation exploring the early years at Aperture, the roles played by Ansel Adams, Beaumont and Nancy Newhall, Dorothy Lange, and others in the magazines’s founding, and the contributions of Minor White, its first editor.
Peter C. Bunnell is the McAlpin Professor of the History of Photography and Modern Art Emeritus at Princeton University and faculty curator of photography emeritus at the Princeton University Art Museum, where he was responsible for the Minor White Archive. He was also a student of Minor White’s at the Rochester Institute of Technology and an assistant to White working on Aperture magazine in the 1950s.
