Minor White is probably best known for his abstract pictures and for his interest in spiritual dimensions. He was an early influence on me in the 1970s. But my favourite pictures by him tend to be his streetscapes. I particularly like this one:

Pioneer Courthouse, Portland 1939 – Silver Gelatin Print –

It would be good to see this ‘in the flesh’. White bequeathed his work to Princeton who has put his archive on-line. He left his house to Aperture.
