Center for Creative Photography – University of Arizona

“The fine print art collection of the Center for Creative Photography is one of the finest in the world, with more than 80,000 photographs representing more than 2,000 photographers, including CCP’s archives. Although the collection’s main strength is photography by twentieth-century American and Mexican artists, CCP holds significant collections of nineteenth- and twentieth-century photography from around the world. Some of the photographers in the art collection include Ansel Adams, Lola Alvarez Bravo, Richard Avedon, Ernest Bloch, Josef Breitenbach, Dean Brown, Wynn Bullock, Harry Callahan, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Andreas Feininger, William Mortensen, Marion Palfi, Aaron Siskind, W. Eugene Smith, Frederick Sommer, Peter Stackpole, Edward Steichen, Paul Strand, Tseng Kwong Chi, Laura Volkerding, and Edward Weston.”

ERIC JOHNSON discovered Ernest Bloch’s photographs and worked on them and wrote the article published in Aperture in 1971.  He worked with Bloch’s daughters and son-in-law to bring Bloch’s photographs into the public eye.

“The Bloch Collection contains pedagogical material gathered by Bloch in his career as a teacher, and papers pertaining to his own lifelong technical and analytic studies; he hand-copied many of the materials in the latter category for posterity and use. Among his studies are a series of notebooks containing a record of Bloch’s extensive studies of counterpoint, harmony, fugue, form, and what he termed “configuration.” He also made extensive and detailed analyses of pieces by Bach, Beethoven, and others. The series of Bloch’s teaching materials include lecture notes, tests, and student papers from his work at the Cleveland Institute and the University of California at Berkely, including manuscripts of student’s (Roger Sessions, Henry Elwell, and Randall Thompson among them) studies in fugue, in the students’ own hands. Some of Bloch’s correspondence with Elwell, and Elwell’s memoirs of Bloch, may also be found in the collection.”
