Aperture Magazine - The Vision & Justice Issues

As the United States navigates a political moment defined by the close of the Obama era and the rise of #BlackLivesMatter activism, Aperture magazine releases “Vision & Justice,” a special issue featuring two covers and highlights within is pages the role of photography in the African American experience. 

Inspired by Frederick Douglass’s 1864 speech “Pictures and Progress,” a call to consider the transformative power of pictures in affecting change in the United States, the immense range of images and writing in “Vision & Justice” underscores photography’s unique corrective power and ability to shape a new vision of the country.

“Vision & Justice" is guest edited by the distinguished author and art historian Sarah Lewis.
