FEATURED IMAGE

Richard Misrach: The Mysterious Opacity of Other Beings

From 2011 through 2014, photographer Richard Misrach shot dozens of leisurely swimmers from his balcony in a Honolulu hotel. Collected together in The Mysterious Opacity of Other Beings, Aperture's new, deluxe monograph, these, quiet, color-saturated photographs convey more than any other work we can think of the unique feeling of floating, outside of time, in the water, under the sun, alone, at peace, on vacation. Each spread of this oversized 17x13-inch book presents a full bleed image of the scoped back view, alongside a detail of the human figure or figures. Somehow this unique design conveys even more the "suspension and wonder" described by John Guida and Sara Barrett in The New York Times. To see a selection of images from the book, continue to our blog.

An Essential Photography Library

An Essential Photography LibraryIn his essay, "Is Photography a Failure," reproduced in Aperture's Stieglitz on Photography, Stiegllitz writes, "This machine can negate ninety-nine percent of what was called and still is called painting. Through it a man who knows how to really photograph is able to channel the impulses of human beings and to register the objective world directly, through the science of optics and the chemistry of silver and platinum, translated into tonalities subtle beyond the reach of any human hand."

It is an important contribution to queer activism, and undoubtably one of the top photography shows of the year.
