Friend and associate of West Coast School masters Edward Steichen, Paul Strand Edward Weston, Berenice Abbott and Ansel Adams, Minor White had a significant modernizing influence on 20th century photography. Teacher and theorist as well as an avant guard photographer, he advanced Alfred Stieglitz's original concept of 'equivalences' in his striking abstract and semi-abstract groupings that he called 'sequences.' White helped found, and for many years was editor of the photography magazine Aperture.
