APERTURE TURNS 60
We're not the only ones with a milestone birthday these days. The Aperture Foundation—a forum and publisher started in 1952 by a progressive group of photographers and critics, including Ansel Adams and Dorothea Lange—will celebrate its 60th anniversary tomorrow evening at Gotham Hall with a gala and auction (absentee bidding available here) featuring works by icons of the form like Adams, Diane Arbus, Chuck Close, Robert Mapplethorpe, and more. Below, a selection of work from the auction.
