In the Beginning | Minor White’s Oregon Photographs

“Long before co-founding Aperture magazine or establishing the groundbreaking photography program at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Minor White (1908-1976) moved to Portland, where he sowed the seeds of what would become a forceful artistic vision. This exhibition of White’s rarely seen early work celebrates the artist’s influence on the region, and honours the Museum’s dedication to acquiring and displaying photography as the institution enters its 125th year.”

– Julia Dolan, Ph.D, The Minor White Curator of Photography
