Moencopi Strata, Capitol Reef, Utah, 1962

Minor White’s "Capitol Reef" is perhaps the finest example of natural abstraction in the history photography. It is, all at once, an objective photograph of an intriguing pattern in rock strata, while simultaneously transcending material reality into an evocative and personally subjective experience. It clearly demonstrates the power of natural forms to stimulate human thought, emotion, and reflection.
