Overview
Location

Twentieth-century American photographer Ansel Adams famously said that the photographics 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. Throughout the exhibition of sicty photographs, sets of prints - grouped in twos and threes - show how on different occasions Adams created varying interpretations from his own negatives. These groups demonstrate how, using the same score, Adams was constantly revising the way it was performed.
