The J. Paul Getty Museum Handbook of the Photographs Collection
Since the J. Paul Getty Museum began collecting photographs in 1984, it has amassed one of the greatest photography collections in the United States. Weston Naef, curator of photographs, has selected more than two hundred masterpieces from this collection and written commentaries on each. Ranging in date from the 1830s to the 1960s, these photographs provide an informal history of the medium and offer a rich sampling of the Getty's holdings.
Also included is an index of photographers whose work is represented in the Museum's collection.
