Howard Greenberg Gallery, New York, 2008
In the photograph offered here, White has cropped the image to show only Murphy's right foot. According to Peter Bunnell, a print of the full negative appears in a Minor White sequence, the combination of photographs and lyrical text that was so central to White’s philosophy and practice of photography. Bunnell has identified the full-negative image as plate 9 in The Temptation of St. Anthony is Mirrors, from 1948. It is believed that the Minor White Archive at Princeton University holds the only extant copy of this sequence in its complete form.
The print offered here was originally part of a group of Minor White photographs accompanied by his manuscript and typed writings, suggesting that it was intended as an illustration for one of the photographer’s many articles or lectures.
