2018 Aperture Summer Open

The Aperture Summer Open is an annual open-submission exhibition at Aperture Foundation’s gallery in New York, featuring a wide variety of work by photographers from around the world. Selected by a jury of leading editors and critics, the exhibition seeks to reveal and report on key themes and trends driving contemporary photography. The exhibition opens the doors of the foundation to photographers of all ages, at all points in their careers, as we seek to promote new ideas and talent.

The theme of the 2018 Aperture Summer Open is “The Way We Live Now.” The curators seek new bodies of work by photographers defining a moment of rapid change in culture, politics, technology, and self-expression. Across ideas of beauty and style, landscape and environment, and media and connectivity, how do photographs define the currents and contradictions of our moment?

The 2018 Aperture Summer Open is curated by Brendan Wattenberg, managing editor, Aperturemagazine; Siobhán Bohnacker, senior photo editor, the New Yorker; Marvin Orellana, photo editor, New York magazine; and Antwaun Sargent, independent writer and critic.

What winners receive

Winners of the Summer Open will be exhibited in a group show at Aperture Gallery, opening June 28, 2018. All finalists are announced in the foundation’s e-newsletter, which reaches fifty thousand subscribers across the globe, including curators, critics, and members of the photography community.

About Lokalphoto:
Lokalphoto is a new online photography marketplace that is modernizing how people find, book, and pay trusted, recommended photographers. Lokalphoto’s platform features transparent pricing and availability, verified reviews and digital downloads of photos with personal usage rights. It supports both professional and amateur photographers and Baltimore is its first launch market — we just launched today, 3/27.
In additional to price and calendar availability, customers can search options like photography genre, session length, photo editing, lighting style and location type. Photographers can set their own pricing, create custom packages, message with potential clients, and deliver photos through Lokalphoto’s secure platform. Lokalphoto takes care of processing payments, sending booking communications, and tracking revenue for taxes. The company collects a 3 percent fee on package prices from photographers, which is significantly lower than industry standard. All accounts are free.
