Aperture 213: Winter 2013
Edited by Michael Famighetti.
Aperture magazine debuted its striking relaunch with the Spring 2013 issue. Featuring superior printing, many more pages, vigorous writing, stunning photographic portfolios, and a design by the award-winning London studio A2/SW/HK, the new Aperture updates its 60-year-old mission as the world's most vital photography magazine in print. Presenting fresh perspectives accessible to the photo practitioner and the culturally curious alike, each issue examines one theme at the heart of contemporary photography, explored in two distinct sections: Words, focused on ideas, interviews and debate, and Pictures, offering an immersive photographic experience of individual artists' projects and series. New columns include "Studio Visit," "The Collectors," "Dispatches," "Object Lessons" and "What Matters Now." The Fall issue, "Playtime," will explore how photography illuminates, facilitates and participates in the many definitions of play-from role-play and sex-play to theater and jokes.
