I've seen this

People who have saved this event:



Commemorating the 35th anniversary of the Museum’s collection of photographs, this exhibition reveals the breadth and depth of the Getty’s acquisitions through an array of its hidden treasures, none of which have been exhibited at the Getty before. Spanning the history of the medium from its early years to the present day, Unseen highlights visual associations between photographs from different times and places to encourage fresh discoveries and underscore a sense of continuity and change within the history of the medium.
