Bullet Holes, Capital Reef, Utah by Minor White (1961)

The photograph titled “Bullet Holes, Capital Reef, Utah” was captured by the artist Minor White in the year 1961. This black and white image portrays a dark rocky terrain with a series of small, round apertures that let light in, resembling bullet holes. The light coming through these holes brightly contrast with the shadows in the rest of the cave-like setting. The photograph emphasizes texture and contrast, as the rough, dark rocks around the holes create an interplay of light and shadow, drawing attention to the pattern made by the so-called bullet holes. The composition explores the abstract relationship between light, darkness, and the natural forms of the rocky landscape of Capital Reef, Utah.
