Photography from the Douglas Nielsen Collection
August 9 - January 4, 2015
The University of Arizona's Center for Creative Photography is mounting a show that presents over 100 photographs from the personal collection of the choreographer and University's Dance professor Douglas Nielsen. The expansive view of the collection will include images by 60 notable artists, Diane Arbus, John Baldessari, Nancy Burson, Jo Ann Callis, Jimmy DeSana, Nan Goldin, Philippe Halsman, Duane Michals, Bruce Nauman, Cindy Sherman, and Joel Peter-Witkin among them. The exhibition's installation promises to heighten the dramatic emotions that exist between the photographer and the subject. The potency of these works is almost electric and the connection between observer and observed translates to us as viewers; we see with the eyes of the image-maker.
