In Focus - Making a Scene : Now on View at the Getty Thru Oct 18

Thirty staged photographs are on view at the Getty Center as part of its In Focus series, a thematic presentation of images from the museum's permanent collection. Past incarnations have included The Nude, The Landscape, and The Portrait, and the current exhibit, Making a Scene, is a window into the world of early set design. Among the pictures is a lively arrangement of 19th and early-20th century tableaux vivants — "living pictures" with theatrically lit costumed subjects in an art-directed setting. Other selections range from daguerreotypes to Polaroids, and the collection features rare works by the likes of Man Ray and Lewis Carroll, providing a comprehensive survey of the curious hybrid of painting, theater, and photography.
