The Center for Creative Photography's exhibition In the Center of Things celebrates the vision and leadership of Harold Jones as founding director of the Center for Creative Photography, first director of LIGHT Gallery in New York, and Professor of Art in the University of Arizona's Photography Program. Doug Nickel, current director of the Center, remarks "The Center for Creative Photography was built on a unique vision of archiving the entire careers of seminal photographers, and providing a venue for the research and dissemination of their life works. Some twenty-eight years later, it continues to perform the vital work charted for it by its founding director, Harold Jones." Jones is the guest curator of the exhibition which features his work and past and present colleagues at the University of Arizona School of Art photography faculty, such as Judith Golden, Barbara Kasten, W. Eugene Smith, Todd Walker, Jack Welpott, and current faculty members; Joe Labate, Carol Flax, Kenneth Shorr and Joyan Saunders. In an adjacent gallery are works mostly drawn from the Center's collection by fifty-three photographers whose work was shown at LIGHT Gallery, including such artists as Paul Caponigro, Mark Cohen, Linda Connor, Robert Frank, Emmet Gowin, Robert Heineken, Eikoh Hosoe, André Kertész, Barbara Morgan, Bea Nettles, and Minor White. Photographs by Wynn Bullock, Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, and Frederick Sommer represent four of the original archives of the Center.
