A culmination of four years photographing throughout Oregon, Washington, and Northern California, Eirik Johnson: Sawdust Mountain focuses on the tenuous relationship between industries reliant upon natural resources and the communities they support.
As part of the Aperture Foundation’s ongoing mission to support the work of emerging photographers, we present Angry Black Snake, an exhibition of the work of Australian photographer Michael Corridore, winner of the 2008 Aperture Portfolio Prize. Part of a new initiative, these prints are available for sale, with the proceeds benefiting both the artist and Aperture Foundation Emerging Artist Fund.
Aperture Foundation and Instituto Cervantes, a non-profit organization that contributes to the cultural advancement of Spanish-speaking countries, have partnered to celebrate and interpret the art of flamenco through photography in two concurrent exhibitions, just prior to the launch of the 10th annual New York Flamenco Festival.
Aperture Gallery presents two simultaneous exhibitions exploring the city of Chicago from different vantage points and periods in history. While Michael Wolf’s large-scale color photographs of downtown Chicago’s buildings and their inhabitants examine public versus private space in the context of 21st-century urban life, Barbara Crane’s intimate Polaroids from the 1980s hone in on private human gestures performed in public at Chicago’s summer festivals.
In keeping with the golden age of Dutch landscape painting four hundred years ago, a new visual statement on the landscape has emerged from the Netherlands. Expressed through the modern mediums of photography and video art, this new imagining of the Dutch landscape is urbanized and altered, depicting the Netherlands as the most artificial country in the world.
