For over thirty years, the "New York Times Magazine" has presented
the myriad possibilities and applications of photography. Aperture
is pleased to present the upcoming publication and exhibition "The
New York Times Magazine Photographs", which reflects upon and
interrogates the very nature of both photography and print
magazines at this pivotal moment in their history and evolution.
Edited by Kathy Ryan, long-time photo editor of the magazine, and
with a preface by former editorial director Gerald Marzorati, this
volume presents some of the finest commissioned photographs
worldwide in four sections: reportage, portraiture, style, and
conceptual photography, including photo illustration. Diverse in
content and sensibility, and consistent in virtuosity, the
photographs are accompanied by reproduced tear sheets to allow for
the examination of sequencing and the interplay between text and

distillation to magazine form. This process is explored further
through texts offering behind-the-scenes perspective and anecdotes
by the many photographers, writers, editors, and other
collaborators whose voices have been a part of the magazine over

serve as a springboard for a rigorous, necessary, and revitalized
examination of photography as presented within a modern
