A presentation of the provocative, controversial works of one of the 20th century's most influential photographers, in recognition of the joint acquisition (the Getty will share with LACMA) of his art and archival materials. Along with his more common images, be on the lookout for early, unique mixed-media pieces, self-portraits and Polaroids.
