“Interest in photography has exploded. The world no longer divides between producers and consumers of photographs—we’re all photographers. With the Aperture Summer Open, we want to create an inclusive experience that explores photographic possibility and makes a statement about the character of the medium now.”
— Chris Boot
In July 2014, Aperture Foundation will mount its first Aperture Summer Open, an open-submission exhibition for which all image-makers are eligible.
The theme of the first Summer Open is photography itself. New work may be entered in any genre, by any author, whether established or aspiring, professional or enthusiast, young or old. The photographs to be exhibited will be selected by Aperture’s executive director, Chris Boot.
