Inside Aperture’s Annual Spring Patron Cocktail Party

On Wednesday, June 1, Aperture Patrons, board members, and special guests gathered for the third annual Spring Patron Cocktail Party at the home of Aperture trustee Michael Hoeh. The evening featured the rare treat of a private presentation by celebrated photographer Gregory Crewdson about his newest body of work, Cathedral of the Pines, published recently to critical acclaim by Aperture and exhibited at Gagosian Gallery. Crewdson, alongside Aperture’s Creative Director, Lesley A. Martin, discussed the work and also addressed the omnipresent nature of photography and the shift that occurs when image-making moves from the private act of creation to a more public process. A cocktail reception followed, where Crewdson inscribed copies of his book and engaged the group by answering questions about his creative practice.
