Aperture #223: Vision & Justice
In This Item
As the United States navigates a political moment defined by the close of the Obama era and the rise of #BlackLivesMatter activism, Aperture magazine releases “Vision & Justice,” a special issue guest edited by Sarah Lewis, the distinguished author and art historian, addressing the role of photography in the African American experience.
Inspired by Frederick Douglass’s 1864 speech “Pictures and Progress,” a call to consider the transformative power of pictures in affecting change in the United States, the immense range of images and writing in “Vision & Justice” underscores photography’s unique corrective power and ability to shape a new vision of the country.
Since kicking off its relaunch with the spring 2013 issue, this classic photography magazine has gone from strength to strength. Both photography snobs and those looking to get into the hobby will appreciate the stirring viewpoints, top-notch printing and, of course, quality photographic portfolios presented in each issue, where one theme in contemporary photography is explored through two distinct sections: Words - made up of ideas, interviews and debates - and Pictures.
