Created in 1952 by photographers and writers as “common ground for the advancement of photography,” Aperture today is a multi-platform publisher and center for the photo community. As the Lucie Foundation is always eager to promote the appreciation and understanding of photography, this collaboration is a wonderful addition to our programs to advocate this goal.
For the remainder of the year, House of Lucie will have a curated selection of Aperture books and magazines for sale at the gallery. These photo books include new releases as well as classic photography monographs. This selection also includes many publications from Lucie Honorees.
Please come visit the gallery today to see the wonderful selection we have to offer. They will make wonderful gifts for those who appreciate art and will make great additions to your photography book collections!
Stay tuned for more Aperture / House of Lucie collaborations to come.

Much of our photography is visual language that creates ultra Luminous composition with the sheer beauty that defines our landscape.
While we don’t follow the same path, an understanding of our current level of skill, creativity and artistry is an important exercise.
We each have a harmonizing way of projecting the mysteries of form, imagination and spirit by seizing the moment as we feel it.
Exhibition on view September 19 – 29, 2019
For over thirty years, Rainier has been in search of the meaning of the mask. What began as a thorough visual photographic documentation of the traditional mask rituals of New Guinea developed into a voyage of discovery that took him around the world photographing traditional masks and mask traditions – from the steppes of Mongolia to the jungles of South America, from the savannahs of West Africa to the ghats of India and the high Himalayan mountain monasteries of Tibet and Bhutan, from “Day of the Dead” festivals in Mexico to the lands of the First Nation tribes of North America and from the temples of Sri Lanka and Bali to the Alpine villages of modern Europe. Edited from thousands of hours of video and still images, Mask is one of the most definitive documentation of traditional masks as they are still danced within the spiritual realm of today’s enduring Indigenous cultures.
Chris Rainier Bio: Chris Rainier is a National Geographic Explorer and photographer who has spent his life documenting traditional cultures and their cultural rituals. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographic Society of London/UK -specializing in cultural preservation. And in the early 1980’s he was a photographic assistant to the noted landscape photographer Ansel Adams helping him use his photography as a social tool to prerserve the National Parks in the United States.
