At the Window: The Photographer’s View

October 1, 2013–January 5, 2014
At the J. Paul Getty Museum, Getty Center

One of the first camera subjects, the window is literally and figuratively linked to the photographic process itself. This exhibition, drawn primarily from the Getty Museum’s collection (including several new acquisitions funded by the Getty Museum’s Photographs Council), looks at the ways photographers have explored their medium by turning to the window as a framing device or conceptual tool. It spans the history of photography, from some of the earliest images by William Henry Fox Talbot, Julia Margaret Cameron, and Eugène Atget to contemporary works by artists such as Robert Adams, Uta Barth, Gregory Crewdson, Sabine Hornig, and Yuki Onodera.
