Convergences are those seemingly random, but definable links between people, things and events. These strange connections are also the subject of a new photography exhibit at the J. Paul Getty Museum in West Los Angeles. 

The show groups together contemporary and historical photos from the museum's permanent collection in order to highlight the unlikely — but uncanny — connection between them. 

KPCC's John Horn recently spoke with Getty Curator Virginia Heckert about the Convergences exhibition.
