Inside Aperture’s October Paul Strand Circle Cocktail Party

On October 13, Aperture Foundation Paul Strand Circle Members, trustees, and staff, along with executive director Chris Boot and editor-at-large Melissa Harris, gathered to celebrate pioneer of social documentary photography Bruce Davidson’s thirty-year publication history with Aperture and the recent monograph Bruce Davidson: Survey. Founding Aperture Paul Strand Circle Members Judy and Leonard Lauder hosted the party with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at their Manhattan home. The artist shared with the group eloquent and funny stories about working with famous subjects at different locations. Guests had the opportunity to ask questions of Davidson and his wife Emily, in addition to receiving private, curated tours of the Lauders’ magnificent art collection. Guests were also treated to a complimentary and signed copy of Survey.
