Aperture 148
Delirium
Summer 1997

Guest edited by W. M. Hunt, this issue of Aperture features work by photographers and scientists in their efforts to capture delirium on paper. Images ranging from contemporary through nineteenth-century show how delirium, clinical or colloquial, has been documented, analyzed, codified, worked over, and wondered about for the last 150 years, together creating a psychic agitation that can be as dark as it is witty.

Artists include Nancy Burson, Debbie Fleming Caffrey, Claude Cahun, Ellen Carey, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Sally Mann, Robert Mapplethorpe, Yasomasa Morimura, Eugene Richards, Weegee, and many more.
