Photography is a technological medium that conveys many emotions through its deep ties to the world around us. It can freeze moments, heighten reality, and create new realms—touching us in unique ways. The Tucson Museum of Art’s collection of photography encompasses more than 500 works from the 20th and 21st centuries. With a focus on American photography, this collection includes landscape, architecture, animal, figurative, and nature studies; portraits, still lifes; and documentary works. Revealing mastery of light, color, and composition, the artists represented here reveal a keen sense of visual awareness, lively imagination, and deep understanding of the power of images as a visual language.
