Collective Action Tonight at Aperture

oldham.jpgWe’ve been known to hunker down for hours (OK, days) with backissues of Aperture, the swoon-inducing photography periodical created in 1952 by Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Barbara Morgan, Minor White, and the Newhalls (historian Beaumont and his writer wife, Nancy). So what better place than the Aperture Foundation to get the scoop on collecting photography? Tonight New York’s Aperture Gallery (547 West 27th St.) hosts a Young Collectors panel discussion, moderated by photo collector and dealer William Hunt, co-owner of Hasted Hunt Gallery (currently showing a great exhibition of Lynne Cohen‘s shots of interiors). Among the collector panelists are Gael Zafrany, David Kronn, Michael Hoeh, and our friend Todd Oldham (pictured at left, in argyle). They’ll discuss the how-to’s of collecting, share their experiences, and answer questions from anyone who isn’t still sleeping off the recent Miami art/design/photo extravaganza and the resulting visual (and verbal) overload.
