Summary

From 1983 through 1997, artist Joe Deal documented the site and construction of the Getty Center through a series of black and white photographs. Between Nature and Culture: Photographs of the Getty Center by Joe Deal presents 130 of Deal's photographs, offering an opportunity to view the evolving site through this artist's eyes, from the selection of the starkly beautiful chaparral-covered mountain top to the steel and travertine of the final stages of construction. With an introduction by Mark Johnstone that provides both a key to understanding Joe Deal's unique vision and commentaries on the thematic groups and individual photographs reproduced, this book offers a dramatic portrait of one of the Getty Center.
