Library Journal Review

A quarter century ago on the Tucson campus of the University of Arizona, Ansel Adams and several other photographers and archivists established the Center for Creative Photography. They were inspired to exhibit and preserve what university president John Schaefer called "the key element of the art and literature of our times." Since then, this small regional photography museum has gradually morphed into a major repository of 20th-century photography, with holdings of over 60,000 images and the personal archives of some 60 masters working in the medium. This catalog of its collections gives a guided tour of these archives and many of the other major bodies of work the Center has acquired. Among the luminaries whose work is highlighted are Adams, W. Eugene Smith, Edward Weston, Tina Modotti, Peter Stackpole, and Laura Gilpin. Each of 54 subcollections is represented by exemplary illustrations and expressive essays by various curators and art educators. The result is a thorough overview of the breadth and eclecticism of what both casual and serious visitors to the Center may find offered in a tone that measures the fulsome devotion of the staff. A useful guide, recommended for academic and large public libraries. Douglas F. Smith, Oakland P.L., CA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
