"I see this more as a philosophical exhibition than a history of space and flight," says Stephen White. He's talking about "Skydreamers: A Saga of Air and Space," an expansive show of photographs and related materials — largely drawn from his collection — that's opening Friday at the Autry National Center in Griffith Park and runs through Sept. 4. "I don't know much about the technical aspects of aviation," he says. "What interests me is how photography interacts with what we call progress.

After surviving 15 years in a difficult business, Los Angeles photography dealer Stephen White will close the doors of his gallery on Thursday--for the last time. White isn't bailing out because of the sagging economy, however. Nor has a lackluster art market done him in. The end of the Stephen White Gallery at 7319 Beverly Blvd. is a measure of success.

Stephen White once tried to kick the habit. After a year of negotiations, he had finally sold his entire collection of 15,000 photographs to the Photographic Center of the Tokyo Fuji Art Museum, and although he won't disclose the amount, he says it was perhaps the largest sum ever paid for a photography collection.

Steve Harvey's article on the statue of former U.S. Sen. Stephen White (Metro, Jan. 28) brought back fond memories of the late 1940s--1949 to be exact. That's when I entered the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. At that time with the exception of substations, the Honor Ranch and Biscailuz Center in the City Terrace district, the department was located in the Hall of Justice at Temple and Broadway (southeast corner). The statue was located across Temple at the northeast corner.

One of the great 19th-Century European traveler-photographers, John Thomson visited China and Southeast Asia during the 1860s and 1870s, when relatively little was known about their cultures in the West. His charm and skill with languages enabled him to photograph subjects inaccessible to most Westerners, including a portrait of King Mongkut of Siam (the king of "The King and I") and the interior of a mandarin's home.

As local art lovers know, "Van Gogh's Van Goghs" was the event of the year at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art--at least in terms of numbers. The exhibition of 70 paintings from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam packed in 821,000 visitors during its 17-week run in the spring, boosted the museum's membership from 64,000 to 118,000 and is said to have netted the museum a whopping $7 million.

Crocker National Bank had but three weeks to live, and its employees were not about to let it die without a proper send-off. So they organized a wake at a downtown San Francisco hotel two weeks ago, complete with miniature Lucite tombstones as party favors and the consecration of a Crocker "time capsule" to carry the bank's memory into the vault of history.
