The University of Arizona

Photo Friday at the Center for Creative Photography

The theme for December’s Photo Friday is "A Sense of Place," and it presents work by three master photographers who have created extraordinary images of places that inspired them.

  • Paul Caponigro’s spiritually moving photographs of Stonehenge explore individual standing stones and their position within the mysterious prehistoric monument as well as the site’s relationship to its surrounding landscape.
  • Hiroshi Sugimoto’s luminous images of water and air offer an ultimate distilling of the form of photographic landscape. They include an intriguing range of interpretations from the realistic to the sublime.
  • Near the end of his career, Paul Strand created poignantly beautiful images of his garden in Orgeval, France. While these images offer the directness and precise vision that is quintessentially Strand, they also take a metaphorical turn, reflecting on issues such as aging.
