Before social distancing
There' s a photographic portraiture books sale this week at @aperturefnd: This week only, collect books and limited-edition prints for up to 50% off by Joel Meyerowitz, Deana Lawson, Paul Strand, Hellen van Meene, and more that explore the power of the portrait. • Portraits are about power, about desire, about fitting in and standing out. Portraits are about the spectacle of self-possession amidst the drama of the world. Portraits, as the writer Michael Schulman notes, are moments in time “rendered timeless.” Every purchase is critical in supporting Aperture and our community of artists—and this week we are pleased to offer a selection of limited-edition books and prints that exemplify photographic portraiture of the highest order, from the exquisite rose-gold gilded edition of Deana Lawson’s Aperture Monograph, to a deluxe boxed set of Ethan James Green’s Young New York, to Joel Meyerowitz’s masterful portraits from Provincetown in the 1970s and ’80s. “If there is anything that I am searching for, it is that moment of exposure,” Meyerowitz writes in Provincetown. “I am looking not only for a good photograph, but for the freshness of experiencing life on the edge of the unknown.” • —Brendan Embser, managing editor, Aperture magazine
Instead of using a service like Linktree I have created a #linkinbio page on my own website: http://hellenvanmeene.com/link-in-bio You can find the link in my bio (duh).
