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.
