MoMA | The Collection | Clarence H. White. (American, 1871–1925) | Oh, you pretty things! |

"A self-taught photographer, he began taking photographs in 1893 and soon developed a style that showed the influence of Whistler, Sargent and Japanese prints."


There is something so evocative about black and white photography. The distance that old b&w photos provide, both in technology and time, only serves to augment this feeling in me. I pore over them, looking for clues to another age.
