Description: Aperture—the premier not-for-profit arts institution dedicated to advancing fine photography—was founded in 1952 by nine gifted individuals possessed of lofty ideals and high ambition: Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Barbara Morgan, Minor White, Beaumont Newhall, Nancy Newhall, Ernest Louie, Melton Ferris, and Dody Warren. Aperture is dedicated to serving the public, shining a spotlight on work that is new and challenging while providing a forum for reevaluations of the history of the medium.
