Attending the new photography exhibit at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts last Friday evening at a preview party, I learned the sad news that curator of the museum, Ted Hartwell, had passed away a few days prior.
The MIA has a wonderful collection of photographs, and it wouldn't have been what it is without Mr. Hartwell. A kind and gentle man, I met him a couple of weeks before when I was in the office looking at some Kertesz prints.
I will miss him, but his legacy lives in the very walls of that fine museum.
Rest in peace.
