Aperture Photographs follows the evolution of Aperture Foundation through a display of photographs from its print and fundraising programs, made over a period of fifty years. The limited-edition print program began in 1967 under Michael Hoffman, Minor White’s successor as director and publisher of Aperture. Working in collaboration with Paul Strand and Edward Steichen, Hoffman launched the program with a new edition of Strand’s Mexican Portfolio and a series of hand-pulled photogravure prints made under the supervision of the artists.
