For this year’s Summer Open, Aperture’s annual open-call exhibition, we asked photographers to consider the ways in which our current reality might echo outlandish narratives of science fiction. The title Black Mirror is borrowed from the 2011 British television series of the same name, which imagines a dystopian near future—a Twilight Zone for the age of the smartphone.
The exhibition is on view through Thursday August 13 at the Aperture gallery. For more information about submitting to the Summer Open: aperture.org/summeropen/
