Synopsis: In celebration of the hundredth anniversary of photo giant Minor White's birth, this volume 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 1950s and 60s, 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.
Born in 1908 in Minneapolis, Minor White created his first major photographs in 1938 in Portland, Oregon, for the Works Progress Administration. His first one-man exhibition was held at the Portland Art Museum in 1942. Over the course of his long career, White held positions at the California School of Fine Arts, the George Eastman House, the Rochester Institute of Technology and, from 1965 until his death in 1976, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His photographs are in the principal collections of Princeton University, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, The J. Paul Getty and Norton Simon museums in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others.

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. This copy is one of the Limited Edition, indicated as such on the Back Limitation Page. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the Limited Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty.
