Visiting The Center for Creative Photography

The Center for Creative Photography, at the University of Arizona, is recognized as one of the world’s finest academic art museums and study centers for the history of photography. The Center opened on the University campus in 1975. The Center also has acquired individual photographs by modern and contemporary photographers including Ansel Adams, Edward Weston and Richard Avedon. There are currently more than 90,000 works by over 2,200 photographers housed at the Center. Our docent, Megan Jackson Fox, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the exhibits we viewed, Richard Avedon; Relationships and Edward Weston; Leaves of Grass. The Avedon exhibit contained black and white photographs of individuals who helped shaped our culture over the years. It occurred to many of us the importance of preserving history through photographic documentation.
