Judith Keller Named Senior Curator of Photographs at Getty Museum


An active member of the J. Paul Getty Museum since 1986, Judith Keller was recently named senior curator of photographs at the Los Angeles-based museum. Keller has been the acting head of the department since January 2009, following the retirement of the department's founding curator, Weston Naef.

Keller's achievements at the museum include more than 20 exhibitions and 10 publications, including "William Eggleston and the Color Tradition" (1999), "Strange Days: Photographs by Garry Winogrand, William Eggleston and Diane Arbus" (2003), and "The Goat's Dance: Photographs by Graciela Iturbide" (2007).

Along with Naef, Keller helped to form the museum's Photographs Council and was promoted to curator in 2008. Since that time, the department has grown to include more than 900 new works from all over the world, most notably some new prints from China, Japan and Korea.
