After his graduation from Rhode Island School of Design in 1979, White moved to New York City, where he began career as a photographer. After 40 trips to South America in four years on travel assignments, he succeeded. “I was very interested in doing music and Hollywood and moving into lots of younger magazines like Guitar and little pop magazines. I marched some of my South American work to Rolling Stone and won an assignment to do Yoko Ono,” White says.
