IN FOCUS | Making a Scene at the Getty Center

Untitled (Michael and Christopher Meatyard), Ralph Eugene Meatyard, 1966

Featuring works by Lewis Carroll, Joel-Peter Witkin, Man Ray, Julia Margaret Cameron, Eileen Cowin, Roger Fenton and many others from the permanent collection.

The photographs in this exhibition make no pretense about presenting the world as it exists; instead, they are the productions of directors and actors who rely on stagecraft and occasional darkroom trickery to tell stories. Spanning photography's history and expressing a range of sentiments, the images in this exhibition are inspired by art history, literature, religion, and mainstream media.

Seated Odalisque, Roger Fenton, 1858.

Photo-Transformation, Lucas Samaras, 1976.
A hundredth of a second here, a hundredth of a second there -- even if you put them end to end, they still only add up to one, two, perhaps three seconds, snatched from eternity.
-Robert Dosineau
