This is a beautifully illustrated tribute to one of the most influential photographers of the twentieth-century. Controversial, misunderstood, and sometimes overlooked, Minor White (1908-1976) is one of the great photographers of the 20th-century, whose ideas exerted a powerful influence on a generation of photographers and still resonate today. His photographic career began in 1938 in Portland, Oregon, with assignments for the WPA (Works Progress Administration). After serving in World War II and studying art history at Columbia University, White's focus shifted toward the metaphorical. He began creating images charged with symbolism and a critical aspect called equivalency, referring to the invisible spiritual energy present in a photograph made visible to the viewer. This book brings together White's key biographical information - his evolution as a photographer, teacher of photography, and editor of Aperture, as well as particularly insightful quotations from his journal, which he kept for more than forty years. The result is an engaging narrative that weaves through the main threads of White's life, his growth as an artist, as well as his spiritual search and ongoing struggle with his own sexuality and self-doubt. He sought comfort in a variety of religious practices that influenced his continually metamorphosing artistic philosophy.
