Robin Schwartz: Amelia and the Animals
Amelia Forman

Aperture, 2014

Amelia is 14 years old. In many ways, she is your average American teenager: since she was three years old, she has been her mother's muse, and the subject of her photographs. However, not every mom is a world-class photographer with a predilection for photographing animals. And it's not every teenager who has portraits of herself with elephants, llamas, ponies, tigers, kangaroos, chimpanzees and endless dogs, cats, and other animals--portraits ...

Josef Koudelka: Exiles
Czeslaw Milosz

Aperture, 2014

About Exiles , Cornell Capa once wrote, "Koudelka's unsentimental, stark, brooding, intensely human imagery reflects his own spirit, the very essence of an exile who is at home wherever his wandering body finds haven in the night. " In this newly revised and expanded edition of the 1988 classic, which includes ten new images and a new commentary with Robert Delpire, Koudelka's work once more forms a powerful document of the spiritual and ...
  
  











  



  
The Open Road: Photography and the American Roadtrip

Aperture, 2014

After World War II, the American road trip began appearing prominently in literature, music, movies and photography. As Stephen Shore has written, "Our country is made for long trips.

Many photographers purposefully embarked on journeys across the U.S. in order to create work, including ...

Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph: Fortieth-Anniversary Edition

Aperture, 2012

When Diane Arbus died in 1971 at the age of 48, she was already a significant influence--even something of a legend--for serious photographers, although only a relatively small number of her most important pictures were widely known at the time. The publication of Diane Arbus: An Aperture Monograph in 1972--along with the posthumous retrospective at The Museum of Modern Art--offered the general public its first encounter with the breadth and ...

Erwin Olaf: Volume II
Francis Hodgson

Aperture, 2014

Erwin Olaf's approach to storytelling is uniquely evocative and enticingly ambiguous.
