Windowsill Daydreaming by Minor White (1958)

The photograph titled “Windowsill Daydreaming” was captured by artist Minor White in the year 1958. The image presents a high-contrast monochromatic composition. It features a textured glass ball resting on a windowsill, with the scene outside refracted and inverted within the orb. The window sports a partially drawn sheer curtain that filters the light, providing softness to the image. Shadows and highlights play across the surfaces, creating an interplay of light and dark that adds depth and visual interest to the image. Minor White’s work here is contemplative and evocative, inviting the viewer to gaze into the glass sphere and ponder the flipped landscape within.
