The New York Times Magazine Photographs is an exhibition that reflects upon and interrogates the very nature of both photography and print magazines at this pivotal moment in their history and evolution.

Opening: March 22th, 17.30PM.


The exhibition is cocurated by Kathy Ryan, longtime Photo Editor of the Magazine, and Lesley A. Martin, Publisher of Aperture Books. The Aperture-produced exhibition is comprised of eleven individual modules, each of which focuses on a notable project or series of projects that have been presented in the pages of the Magazine. The featured projects mirror the Magazine's eclecticism, presenting seminal examples of reportage, portraiture, as well as fine art photography. Using visual materials drawn from different stages of the commissioning process-shot lists, work prints and contact sheets, videos, tear sheets, and framed prints-the Magazine's collaborative methodology is revealed from initial idea to the published page, and, in some cases, continues beyond magazine publication, when an exploration that began as an assignment has become a part of a photographer's ongoing work. In sum, these layers reveal the Magazine's unique position as a venue for visual storytelling and a unique forum for the cross-pollination of photographic genres.


The exhibition includes 500 images by 140 photographers, amongst which:
Lilian Bassman, Chuck Close, Philip Lorca diCorcia, Gregory Crewdson, Thomas Demand, Rineke Dijkstra, Mitch Epstein, Lee Friedlander, Nan Goldin, Jeff Koons, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Annie Leibovitz, Ryan McGinley, Hellen van Meene, Jeff Mermelstein, Simon Norfolk, Paolo Pellegrin, Gilles Peress, Sebastiao Salgado, Andres Serrano and Malick Sidibe.


The New York Times Magazine Photographs can be seen from 23 March - 30 May 2012 at Foam. Open daily 10 am - 6 pm, Thurs/Fri 10 am - 9 pm. Tickets: € 8,50.
