Minor White at the Getty

Current retrospective on photographer Minor White, Minor White: Manifestations of the Spirit showcases works spanning his career, from 1937 -1976.  Influenced in his early years by Ansel Adams, White was a master of photographic modernism, capturing images that were not only beautiful but also evocative, brimming with symbolism and metaphorical allusions.  He used photography to reveal his search for spiritual transcendence and as a medium through which he could express his repressed homosexuality.  

The show opened at the Getty Center on July 8 and continues through October 19, 2014.
