B&W Issue 127: Joe Aguirre, “Your memory, your everything, and the in-between.”

"Few photographers can move so fluently between images of children, coitus, fellow commuters, or natural disasters as Aguirre.

Like the world’s shortest story, apocryphally attributed to Hemingway, “For sale: baby shoes, never worn,” unwritten volumes, and worlds exist before and following his shutter’s comprehension. Aguirre initiates, rewards, and places faith in our own potential for developing, and exchanging voluble, wordless stories." full text here
