This edition of Aperture
relaunches the magazine under the title "Hello, Photography," a playful nod to Daido Moriyama's seminal project Bye, Bye Photography. Now divided into two distinct sections, "Words" and "Pictures," the issue offers a broad sweep of key issues for photography today.
The new "Words" section brings readers the sharpest ideas on photography: Charlotte Cotton
asks if institutions are stifling innovation; Geoffrey Batchen
teases out what social media means for photography; Arthur Ou
confronts the challenges of photographic education; and Robin Kesley
investigates the key questions driving new scholarship today. Conversations round out this issue's "Words" with Jeff Wall
and Lucas Blalock
, Mark Westmoreland
and Akram Zaatari, and Virginia Rutledge and Penelope Umbrico.
"Pictures" is the magazine's superbly printed new visual showcase. Featured for Spring are portfolios from the Gary Winogrand Archive
