The Window in Photographs
Karen Hellman
The Window in Photographs

The window has provided photography with one of its richest themes since its inception. By bringing together key works from the J. Paul Getty Museum's permanent collection and presenting pairings of them within broader stylistic movements, this elegantly conceived volume considers the motif of the window as an enduring photographic symbol. This book accompanies the exhibition At the Window: The Photographer's View on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum through January 5, 2014.

This book is published to coincide with the exhibition In Focus: Architecture, on view at the J. Paul Getty Museum from October 15, 2013 to March 2, 2014.
