As we go to press, at the end of March (for this issue that you will receive in August), we momentarily put aside the newspapers and turned off the television and radio, and instead looked outward. To recharge, to steel ourselves, to take a breath.

In the mid 1970s a new generation of German artists, born a few years after the war, was coming of age, and in Paris my friends and I watched them intently: we were also artists, painters, writers, and photographers— a generation in their twenties and looking for fresh directions.

David Levi Strauss
The effect of those images, when first broadcast early in the afternoon of April 9, 2003, was certainly instantaneous, and mostly unambiguous, at least in the United States. The headlines over the still images published in U.S. newspapers the next day trumpeted the message: “Baghdad Falls” and “A Tyrant Toppled.”

Since photography’s invention, the medium has been inextricably tied to notions of truth and memory. Early marketing phrases—“a mirror with a memory,” “the camera never lies”—are so entrenched in us that, even with today’s myriad capabilities of digital manipulation, we still believe in the truth of photography, and call upon it to help us remember.

Peter Schjeldahl
Baseball is beyond photogenic. It is pictorial. The quarter-circle defined by the foul lines is like a flat diagram of the eye's cone of vision. The game's action radiates out from and funnels into home plate, a sort of reversible vanishing point.

FEDERICO FELLINI
Federico Fellini was born and raised in the seaside resort town of Rimini. The following reminiscence, written by the great filmmaker in 1967, has been rarely available to English-speaking readers. Marco Pesaresi's photographs reveal how little Fellini's hometown has changed since the time of his writing.

The ground is bleeding. A red river cuts a path through a bleached valley, winding toward a lake that is no longer there. Seen from the air, the river and its dry terminus appear otherworldly. In actuality, this terrain is located in Owens Valley, an arid stretch of land in southeastern California, between the Sierra Mountains and the White-lnyo Range.

When they first clambered off the truck they looked dazed. Steam flared from their nostrils in the chill of the Minnesota morning. They were range stock from somewhere in the West bought to be fattened with the extra corn off his small farm. The cattle stared out dazed and we had to shoo them toward the trough where the golden kernels of corn mystified their primitive palettes.

Richard Whelan
Gerda Taro—who died in July 1937, while she was photographing the Spanish Civil War— is widely known for having been Robert Capa’s lover and for being the first female photographer to be killed while covering combat, indeed probably the first woman to photograph in the heat of battle.

When William Henry Fox Talbot first began to experiment with his “mousetrap” camera—a small, pinholed box with a piece of paper film inside—he delighted in poring over his tiny views of the world. Surely the thrill must have come from stealing a march on reality, rendering the world without the effort of the hand, like being God’s spy.

I still catch myself making mental or scrawled notes to telephone or e-mail Carole . . . Carole Kismaric, the brilliant editor of these pages from the mid 1970s to the mid 1980s, when she helped thrust Aperture into the thick of tumultuous changes that shaped the future of serious photography.

The situation in Tibet, already very grave, is steadily growing worse, whether we look at our culture in general or Buddhism in particular. Moreover, the environment is being seriously damaged and human rights are being constantly abused.

From photography’s beginning in the nineteenth century to the present, critics have engaged various scanning mechanisms and theoretically anchored reading protocols to identify "historically constructed ways of seeing" in an attempt to prevent the photograph from enmeshing the viewer in the medium’s illusion of a "frozen moment."

With our photos of industrial landscapes we were primarily concerned with localizing the objects in order to reconstruct visually what industrial complex the headgear or blast furnace was a part of and where it was located. This approach made it possible to order and compare the total views according to themes.
