Thanks all for your input...
Turns out that all the print study times were
taken, although the curator was graciously going to try to arrange for a student
to stay late to help me. Unfortunately, there was a bit of communications
breakdown on both ends, and I got to the center with one hour to spare, and I
had to make a choice of seeing the Linda Connor exhibit or seeing if they could
accomodate me for print study. I chose seeing the Connor show....
It was the right choice. What an amazing collection
(maybe over 100 photographs total)...all 8x10 POP prints of amazing detail and
clarity, subject, composition...it was very moving.
If you're anywhere near Tucson, you must see this
One caveat...in the last gallery, there are
"archival pigment" prints from "someone or other's collection", which are
enlargements of Connor photos mounted on aluminum, 20x24 and larger, other
various sizes...they were nice to see because they were different images than
the rest of the show, but they did not come anywhere near the beautiful
luminosity seen in the POP prints...I don't know the full story why they were
there, but I wouldn't have included them if I had curated the show. I have to
look into this just to satisfy my curiosity...

Center for Creative Photography
I've been to the Center For Creative Photography a couple of times.
One time I just sort of got lost and shuffled around the back hallways
and peeked into offices and meeting rooms. At that time the walls were
covered with work by Wynn Bullock—it was great!

his seeing and tonal genius shines through - I can only imagine the
beauty of his original prints...
