6. Tuesday, June 8th, Aperture Presents: The Pleasures of Good Photographs, Gerry Badger and John Gossage in Conversation
547 West 27th Street, 4th floor
New York, New York
The Pleasures of Good Photographs is an intellectual and aesthetic excursion led by Gerry Badger, one of photography’s eminent critics and popular writers. Please join Aperture for a conversation with Badger and his contemporary, author and photographer John Gossage, celebrating this new volume of essays. Drawing upon nearly three decades of writing and thinking about photography, the event will offer insight into their favorite images, artists, and themes. The Pleasures of Good Photographs showcases primarily new essays, with a few classics thrown in for good measure, making it an important addition to the canon of photographic writing. A book signing will follow.
7. While we’re on the topic of Aperture, don’t forget to apply for the portfolio prize!
The purpose of the Aperture Portfolio Prize is to identify trends in contemporary photography and specific artists whom we can help by bringing them to a wider audience. In choosing the first-prize winner and runners-up, we are looking for work that is fresh and that hasn’t been widely seen in major publications or exhibition venues.
First prize is $5,000. The first-prize winner and runners-up are featured in Aperture’s website for approximately one year. Winners are also announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches thousands of subscribers in the photography community.
The entry period for the 2010 Aperture Portfolio Prize begins Friday, May 14, 2010, and the deadline is Wednesday, July 14, 2010, at 12:00 noon EST. All entrants will be contacted with final results by November 1, 2010. For more information, see the Guidelines and FAQs pages.
