We Make Pictures in Order to Live

We Make Pictures in Order to Live


This spring, Aperture magazine presents issue #250, “We Make Pictures in Order to Live,” which explores the relationship between photography and storytelling across generations and geographies. Featuring visual stories that excite, surprise, and illuminate daily life, this issue’s title is a nod to the late, celebrated writer Joan Didion, who declared, “We tell ourselves stories in order to live.” Aperture contributors explore the quiet poetry— or clamorous disorder—of the everyday, and attest that making photographs is a way of being alive
