When the photograph is a mirror of the man, and the man is the mirror of the world, then Spirit might take over. -Minor White

In a continuation of using subject matter to represent an "other", Minor White reflects an ethereal and spiritual element within his work. White held to a philosophy that stated "photographing is the mirror reflection of the self" and that "the photographer is a receptor and carrier of special meanings" which can become "revelatory manifestations" for others. White committed much of his time to his own spiritual development and the ethereal aspects of his photos reflected his spiritual devotion.

Toss flowers in a pool and follow them as they trace the slow undercurrents of the water and the twisting breath of the wind. Then, as they move at seemingly random, photograph precisely.
