November 17th, NYC: Panel Discsussion with Kathy Ryan

Aperture Foundation
Panel Discussion with Kathy Ryan, New York Times Magazine Photographs
Thursday, November 17, 2011 at 7:00 pm
Admission: Free

“Longtime photo editor Kathy Ryan will discuss her new book, The New York Times Magazine Photographs (Aperture, 2011) at Barnes and Noble with photographers Damon Winter and Taryn Simon.

The book reflects upon and interrogates the nature of both photography and print magazines, at this pivotal moment in their history and evolution. It presents some of the finest commissioned photographs worldwide of various types, including reportage, portraiture, style, conceptual photography, and photo illustration. Also addressed are issues of documentary photography in relation to more conceptual photography; the efficacy of storytelling; and what makes an image evidentiary, objective, subjective, truthful, or a tool for advocacy; as well as discussion of whether these matters are currently moot, or more critical than ever. As such, The New York Times Magazine Photographs aims to serve as a springboard for a rigorous, necessary, and revitalized examination of photography as presented within a modern journalistic context.”

October 26th, NYC: Artist Talk by Bruce Davidson

Artist Talk: Bruce Davidson, Subway
Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 6:30 pm
Admission: Free

“First published in 1986, photographer Bruce Davidson‘s classic book Subway has since garnered critical acclaim for its phenomenal use of extremes of color and shadow set against flash-lit skin.  In this third publication, a sequence of 118 images, including 25 never-before-published photographs, moves the viewer through a landscape sometimes menacing, at other times lyrical, soulful, and satiric. The images include the full panoply of New Yorkers—from weary straphangers and languorous ladies in summer dresses, to stalking predators, and the homeless.  Davidson’s accompanying text tells the story behind the images, clarifying his method and dramatizing his experience.

Join Davidson for a talk and book signing on the occasion of his exhibition Subway, and the reissue of his book. Please note that Davidson will only be signing copies of Subway at his artist talk and no other publications.”

This talk is being presented in conjunction with Davidson’s exhibition at Aperture on view until October 29th.
