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, house in Tucson at the University of Arizona, this exhibition illustrates Adams’s meaning. Throughout the exhibition of sixty 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 contantly revising the way it was performed.

This exhibition is located in the Doris and John Norton Gallery for the Center for Creative Photography. It is available for viewing in reflection of museum hours from January 25, 2020 through June 7, 2020.
