Where We Live: Photographs of America from the Berman Collection

Burning Oil Sludge North of Denver, Colorado by Robert Adams, 1970

The Getty Center has put together a very nice web site for its current exhibition including photographs, artist biographies, and audio commentaries from collector Bruce Berman and some of the photographers.


"The Getty Museum's photographs department was created in 1984 with the acquisition of a number of exceptional American and European private collections. More recently, a new generation of visionary collectors—exemplified by Nancy and Bruce Berman—has left its mark on the Museum.

Since 1998 the Bermans have donated nearly 500 photographs to the Getty, transforming the Museum's collection of contemporary American color photography. Bruce Berman is also a founding member of the Photographs Council, a group that supports the Museum's contemporary photography programs."
