Aperture Magazine to Launch Digital Archive

Six Decades of the Pioneering Photography Journal, Complete and Searchable

New York— Aperture Foundation is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of the Aperture Digital Archive, a fully searchable online resource containing every issue of Aperture magazine since its founding in 1952. On September 10, 2015, for the first time, users will be able to access all 220 issues of the magazine from their desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device.

The creation of the Aperture Digital Archive will preserve one of the most historically important publications in photography, and bring it to a wider audience. “Aperture is a document of great artistic, cultural, and scholarly value,” says Dana Triwush, the publisher, “and the archive is designed as a dynamic, interactive tool in keeping with the high standard of content and image quality for which the magazine is known.”

To bring this trove of photography to life, Aperture Foundation partnered with Bondi, a New York-based technology and creative services company whose platform powers the online archives of many top magazines. The Bondi platform presents every back issue as a full digital replica—preserving the magazine’s award-winning design—with every article and image indexed individually. Aperture worked with Bondi to add additional metadata, so that users can now search more than 15,000 images by photographer, genre, keywords, and more.

“This archive fits perfectly with the mission of the foundation and we hope it not only becomes an inspiring resource, but also a valuable educational and creative tool for artists, writers, historians, scholars, photographers, and enthusiasts worldwide,” says Triwush. The foundation has partnered with JSTOR and ProQuest to bring the Aperture Digital Archive to college and university campuses around the world.
