ALT1 ... that photographer Minor White's 1974 Totemic Sequence presents two versions of the same image, flipping the negative over vertically between the first and the second? EEng (talk) 22:30, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm current researching a major expansion of this article. If anyone would like to collaborate with me, please let me know soon. Lexaxis7 (talk) 04:48, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

I have many books by and about Ansel Adams, who held Minor White in high regard. I will take a look. Cullen328 Let's discuss it 05:04, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
