Elements of Style

This issue of Aperture magazine, “Elements of Style,” investigates the role of style, dress, and beauty in the formation of individual identity. From the stunning studio work of Kwame Brathwaite, the Harlem-based photographer who advanced the iconic political slogan “Black is Beautiful,” to Collier Schorr’s representation of the queer community in the fashion contexts, to Pieter Hugo’s portraits of young students at a Beijing art school, this issue reveals across time and geographies, how fashion and style help us to see who we are and who we might become.
