Aperture is a non-profit foundation dedicated to promoting photography in all its forms. It was founded in 1952 by photographers Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Barbara Morgan, and Minor White; historian Beaumont Newhall; and writer/curator Nancy Newhall; as well as Melton Ferris, Ernest Louie, and Dody Warren. With scant resources, these visionary artists created a new quarterly periodical, Aperture, to serve photographers and photography enthusiasts worldwide. Aperture has maintained the founders’ spirit throughout its history in terms of its editorial freedom, its experiential nature, and the confluence of disparate sensibilities and approaches that may converge in any given issue of the magazine. The aim is to foster both the development and the appreciation of the medium and its practitioners.
Other prizes may be awarded at the sole discretion of PhoozL. Who knows?!
