    Out of curiosity, anybody else like Minor White? While less impressed with his IR landscapes (nice, but...), I find myself drawn to his close-ups of rocks, bark, etc., especially those in which one sees just the form and tones, and has a hard time picking out what the original subject was. There is one print in the Aperture monograph which could be rocks, mirror fragments, or a collage. On a less photographic, and more personal level, I like his lack of titles, and technical details being summarized as "The camera was faithfully used".

    Yes, I've always loved Minor White's work. And there is no better book of art ever published than the late, much lamented "Mirrors, Messages, Manifestations". I wish someone would bring that back for a reasonable price.

    I also enjoy Minor White's images. i have seen prints of Two Barns and Shadow and Windowsill Daydreaming at the Art Institute in Chicago. Both are beuatifull prints and very mesmerizing.

    Why "needless to say why"?

    Adams because of his calendar sales? Weston because the guy was magic with chicks? "Needless to say why" is troublesome talk.

    At the moment - Lucien Clergue, or Cecil Beaton, or ... Fritz Henle ... or Alfred Cheney Johnston.... or.... Charles Wilp ....

    Wait... "Favorite" implies just *one* ... it is impossible for me to choose just one.

    If you don't understand the qualities of these icons of photography art, it will be useless to make you understand.
