ABOUT BRUCE DAVIDSON:
Bruce Davidson has been a member of Magnum Photos since 1958, and was the recipient of both the first grant in photography from the NEA and a Guggenheim Fellowship, the latter of which supported his documentation of the civil rights movement. His photographs of the era will be featured in the exhibition, Time of Change, at Aperture Gallery in New York City later in May. His Aperture books include Subway (1986), Central Park (1995), and Portraits (1999). His lectures are generously supported by Canon’s “Explorers of Light” program.
ABOUT APERTURE WEST:
Aperture West was officially launched in 2002 to reactivate Aperture’s relationship with the photography community west of the Mississippi, especially in California, where 40% of Aperture subscribers reside. Though now well-entrenched in New York, Aperture was started in San Francisco through the efforts of Minor White, Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Barbara Morgan, Dody Weston Thompson, Ernest Louie, Melton Ferris, and Beaumont and Nancy Newhall. To acknowledge the distinctive work that is being created in the western states, Aperture has initiated placement of traveling exhibitions, educational programming including the Aperture West Collaborative series, and a one-on-one portfolio review program to make Aperture an active presence in the photography communities in California, Washington, Alaska, New Mexico, Texas, and beyond.”
