Minor White: Manifestations of the Spirit Date: Daily, July 8 - October 19, 2014, Location: West Pavilion, Lower Level, Getty Center
Controversial, misunderstood, and sometimes overlooked, Minor White (American 1908–1976) was one of the great photographers of the twentieth century. His photographs demonstrate an understanding of the aesthetic and technical aspects of photography as well as its potential to be a medium of spiritual transformation. White's work as an artist, teacher, editor, and critic exerted a powerful influence on a generation of photographers and still resonates today. This retrospective exhibition features White's masterpiece, the eleven-print sequence Sound of One Hand (1965).
