Aperture Foundation is a nonprofit arts institution, founded in 1952 by Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Beaumont Newhall e.a.. Aperture today is a multi-platform publisher and center for the photo community.

US photographer Edward WESTON kept a diary in which he recorded his struggle to understand himself, society and his art. 'The Daybooks of Edward Weston' were edited by Nancy Newhall in two volumes: one for his time in Mexico and one for Californian time.
In his work, here in 'Figure & Ground', Richard RENALDI melds two classic photographic genres - portrait and landscape - into a single descriptive frame that speaks as much to a sense of the individuals before the lens as it does to the space they inhabit
