This exhibition celebrating the legacies of LIGHT, a significant early photography gallery, focuses on characteristics identified by those who visited, worked, showed, and were impacted by the gallery.
Twentieth-century American photographer Ansel Adams famously said that the photographic negative is like a composer’s score, and the print a performance. Drawn from the Ansel Adams Archive, at the Center for Creative Photography, housed in Tucson at the University of Arizona, this exhibition illustrates Adams’s meaning.

Presented here are Meiselas’s photographic explorations of Nicaragua, beginning with photographs she made in the late 1970s, El Salvador, including work starting in 1979, and her project on Kurdistan, begun in the early 1990s. Each of these projects is active, with the photographer remaining engaged with the ongoing lives and histories of the people, places, and pictures themselves.

This first edition of the CCP Interdisciplinary Gallery considers what it means to achieve a 20/20 “clarity of vision” in our saturated image culture, noisy information environment, and charged political atmosphere. It engages with key questions we ask of images in order to more deeply understand the stories they tell. It embraces photographs taken “on the front line” as open forums for exchange and debate.
