Aperture Panel: Abstraction in Photography

From the beginning, abstraction has been intrinsic to photography, and its persistent popularity reveals much about the medium. Artists Susan Rankaitis and James Welling and UCLA Associate Professor of Art History George Baker debate a host of approaches to the abstract photographic experience in this panel discussion moderated by Lyle Rexer, the author of The Edge of Vision: The Rise of Abstraction in Photography.

Formed in 1952, Aperture Foundation aims to foster the development and appreciation of the photographic medium and its practitioners. For more information visit www.aperture.org.
