Minor White: Manifestations of the Spirit
July 8 - October 19, 2014
At the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Center
Controversial, misunderstood, and sometimes overlooked, Minor White (American 1908–1976) pursued a life in photography with great energy and ultimately extended the expressive possibilities of the medium. A tireless worker, White’s long career as a photographer, teacher, editor, curator, and critic was highly influential and remains central to understanding the history of photographic modernism. Minor White: Manifestations of the Spirit, on view July 8–October 19, 2014 at the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Center is the first major retrospective of his work since 1989.
