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.”
