“I was interested in the Getty Center site because it was a
place that had somehow escaped development. It was an island or peninsula of
scarred mountainside surrounded by a carefully constructed landscape that was
about to become a cultural symbol unlike anything else in the neighborhood, or
even the country.”



In the years between 1984 and 1997, photographer Joe Deal
recorded the transformation of a chaparral-covered mountaintop to the
travertine-covered complex of the Getty Center.


Expanding his work chronicling the changing Southern
California landscape, Deal embarked on a campaign to document the construction
of a major piece of architecture and interpret its relationship to the natural
environment. He completed the assignment in two phases: The photographs made
during the first phase (April 1984–March 1989) capture the natural ruggedness
of the terrain and establish its relationship to the developed neighboring
enclaves. Those made during the second phase (April 1992–August 1997) not only
record the actual construction process but also reveal Deal’s personal
perspective on the qualities of light and the creation of form. Represented in
this book is a selection from the resulting portfolio, Topos, a Greek word meaning place, site, position, and
occasion—Deal’s artistic legacy to the Getty Center.


Mark Johnstone has written an
essay in which he provides both a key to understanding Joe Deal’s unique vision
as well as commentaries on the thematic groups and individual photographs
