After reviewing over 800 portfolios, Aperture’s editorial and curatorial staff narrowed it down to just six finalists. Silano’s latest series of photos, “Male Fantasy Icon,” examines life before the AIDS epidemic through reworked images of Al Parker, one of the most famous gay porn stars of the 1970s. The winner of the Aperture Portfolio Prize, which will be announced in June, will receive a cash prize of $3,000 and an exhibition at Aperture Gallery in fall 2013. For more info, click here.
