The accompanying essays succinctly sum up the photographer's life and achievement. "Features seminal works spanning his entire career. White's contribution to photography was formidable. In addition to being a master craftsman, he was also a highly influential writer, critic, curator, editor, and teacher. During the 1950's and 1960's, White's house in Rochester, New York served as an important meeting place for a number of photographers as well as the editorial offices of Aperture Magazine, which White founded in 1952 with Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, Barbara Morgan, and Beaumont and Nancy Newhall" (Publisher's blurb). "The hallmark of a Minor White photograph is always apparent. It is rooted in a tension between what is depicted - the reality of the moment in light - and what the image might signify. One can understand this and recognize that such intent requires a special consciousness" (Peter C. Bunnell). Minor White had very high expectations and standards for photography: A heightened aesthetic awareness, poetic vision, and ultimately, transcendent mysticism. These were not only eloquently articulated in his manifesto-essays, they were fully realized in his great photographs. An absolute "must-have" title for Minor White collectors.
