This spring, Aperture magazine presents “Celebrations,” an issue that considers how photographs envision ceremonies, festivities, and the exuberance of everyday life. https://bit.ly/3JawX7g

"Celebrations" is a nod to a 1974 issue by the same title, in which the editors of Aperture noted: “Today, there is a great need for emphasizing the climactic affirmations of life’s events and feelings.” Throughout the issue, photographers portray vitality against backdrops of political strife, pursue the thrill of wanderlust, excavate family histories, and respond to the powerful, constant urge to gather—reminding us that marking time and pausing to look are also forms of revelry.
