Join Aperture for the opening receptions of both the 2018 Portfolio Prize Winner Ka-Man Tse’s exhibition, narrow distances, and the 2018 Paris Photo–Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards Shortlist. Ka-Man Tse’s project explores the intersection of Asian and Pacific Islander and LGBTQ communities in Hong Kong and New York City. The PhotoBook Awards Shortlist comprises thirty-six volumes, celebrating the book’s contribution to the evolving narrative of photography.

Ka-Man Tse is a photographer, video artist, and educator. She received an MFA from Yale University and a BA from Bard College, and has exhibited her work both internationally and across the United States. Tse was a SPARC artist in residence through the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and completed the Artist in the Marketplace Program through the Bronx Museum of the Arts. She is the recipient of the 2014–15 Robert Giard Fellowship, and a 2017–18 Yale University Fund for Lesbian and Gay Studies Research Award. In spring 2018, her photographs were featured in Queering Space at Alfred University, Alfred, New York, and at the WMA Masters exhibition, Transition, in Hong Kong, and she cocurated Daybreak: New Affirmations in Queer Photography at the Leslie-Lohman Museum, New York. Tse’s first monograph, narrow distances, was published by Candor Arts in July 2018. She teaches at Yale University and Parsons.

About the Aperture Portfolio Prize
The purpose of the Aperture Portfolio Prize is to identify high-quality work by new voices in contemporary photography. When choosing the first-prize winner and runners-up, Aperture’s editorial and curatorial staff look for innovative bodies of work that haven’t been widely seen in major publications or exhibition venues.

The Portfolio Prize is open to Aperture magazine print subscribers and to Aperture Members at the $250 Friend level or above. For more information about the prize, visit aperture.org/portfolio-prize.
