If anyone happens to be passing through the midwestern USA (Lawrence, Kansas) be sure to stop in to the Spencer Museum of Art on the University of Kansas campus. Right now through July they have a selection of 50 or 60 photographs up from their collection of photographs (which is one of the best in the country). The show is called "Daguerreotype to Digital", and shows examples of the many photographic printing processes uses over the years. There are a lot of famous photographers' work included in this show: Minor White, Ansel Adams, Harry Callahan, Robert Frank, Berenice Abbot, Margaret Bourke-White, Edward Weston, and many more. There is nothing like seeing their prints in person. There is a Minor White photograph that I had never seen before except in books and the web. It's called "Capital Reef" at this site, although it is labeled with another title in the show. http://www.masters-of-photography.com/W/white/white_capitol_reef.html It is about a million times richer in person than it looks at that link. When it's printed in books and on the web its like half the photograph is lost. Whenever I hear someone say they don't understand the excitement over photographers such as Ansel Adams or Minor White I always suspect that they have never seen the real photographs in person. Get out. Go to your local museums and galleries. See the real photos!
