Also in this issue: Aaron Rothman concludes his two part essay on photography, perception, and landscape, Denise Wolff interviews Gary Schneider at the Harvard Symposium on Contemporary Photography, a visit with the Starn brothers in their Brooklyn studio to review their newest body of work, Attracted to Light, writer and consultant Mary Virginia Swanson and our Editor Darius Himes introduce a new column on Publishing the Photography Book, and as always, we survey the best new photography books available today.

Rita Bernstein's Portfolio
I find the uninhibited behavior of young people to be a rich source of clues to the interior life generally; with awkwardness and eloquence, children experience the same psychological and social dramas with which we continue to struggle as adults. I work intuitively, discovering rather than orchestrating my pictures, and gravitating toward situations that are evocative of my own memories, fears, and longings.

Aperture Wins National Magazine Award
The renowned photography magazine Aperture won its first ever National Magazine Award in the category of General Excellence for a publication with a circulation under 100,000. According to the judges, "Aperture is at once a showcase for compelling photography and a photographic window onto worlds ranging from Florida baseball to AIDS in Africa to 19th-century Peru. The text and presentation are as eye opening as the images. Aperture exemplifies magazine-making at the highest level."

Simon Norfolk: Afghanistan Simon Norfolk: Afghanistan
Norfolk's big, color soaked photographs of war-ravaged Afghanistan portray a land wrecked by decades of sustained bombings from the Russians, the Americans, and the Afghanis themselves during the various civil wars. In the cover photograph, a street balloon vendor stands holding the only colorful item in the landscape, with the skeleton of a mosque standing to his right, dust and bomb craters covering the scene. "In Kabul in particular, the devastation has a bizarre layering; the different destructive eras lying on top of each other."—Simon Norfolk READ MORE
