The Aperture Gallery and Bookstore are temporarily closed while we look for a new home. In the meantime, you can engage with Aperture through our traveling exhibitions, or browse our books and magazines online.

Scam Alert (April 2022): Aperture has been notified that unauthorized individuals are posing as Aperture staff in a phishing scheme targeting photographers. The scammers identify as Aperture staff and say they are trying to license the photographer’s work for publication in Aperture magazine. The scammers provide a letter of agreement, signed by Aperture trustees, which states that the photographer will be paid a large licensing fee, but only after paying a small administrative fee first. This is a scam. Do not reply or respond.
