            TIME magazine’s unprecedented triple-fold cover for the March 17, 2014 issue features a spectacular bird’s-eye view of One World Trade Center. On April 1, 2014, Kira Pollack, director of photography and visual enterprise at TIME, interviewed Jonathan D. Woods, TIME’s photo and interactive senior editor, about how he and Michael Franz created this image, a photographic collaboration that took many months from conception to execution. The 360-degree photograph was made from over 567 images taken over a five-hour period, with a camera mounted on a twelve-foot aluminum pole attached to the spire. Pollack and Woods took the audience through this process with stills and video, and addressed the promise of photography today.

            • Richard Ross: Attention to a Larger Context

              In this video, Richard Ross speaks about how the images from Architecture of Authority as a whole engage in a discussion attempting to change our perception of our social surroundings. The exhibition Architecture of Authority is currently on view at Aperture Gallery through July 31st. With this body of work American photographer Richard Ross presents unsettling pictures of architectural spaces that each exert a kind of power over the individual. From a Montessori preschool, to churches and mosques, to an interrogation room at Guantánamo and segregation cells at Abu Ghraib, Ross's photographs reflect the state of our post 9/11 world—one in which he believes the public has become accustomed to the abuse of power, erosion of individual liberty, illegitimate authority, and constant surveillance.

                  On Tuesday, April 15, 2014, artist James Bridle joined us at Aperture Gallery to discuss his latest project, Dronestagram, featured in the Spring 2014 issue of Aperture magazine. Sourcing cartographic images and metadata from the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, an independent news organization in the UK, Bridle posts on Instagram aerial views of the approximate locations of airstrikes carried out by the United States government in countries such as Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia. Embracing the accessibility of social media, Bridle creates a visual record of the invisible war being waged overseas. Each caption details the casualties and location of the attack. This clever and chilling project has garnered a lot of attention; the Dronestagram account now has over 10,000 followers and has sparked debate over the moral and political implications of anonymous warfare.

The event was organized for the launch of Matthew Pillsbury’s monograph, City Stages, as part of Walls and Bridges, a ten-day French-American arts and ideas festival curated by Villa Gillet. Matthew Pillsbury presented a brief slideshow of his photographs capturing human activity in urban environments, ranging from isolated moments—when people were tuned into the omnipresent screens of tablets, laptops, televisions, and phones—to crowded spectacles at museums, parades, cathedrals, and even protests. In discussion, Pillsbury and Lussault shared observations and discussed the relationships between individuals, everyday environments, and the urban landscape.
