John P. Schaefer
John Schaefer took up photography as a hobby thirty years ago, and has since become well recognized for his technical skill and has published exensively on photographic technique. While president of the University of Arizona from 1971 to 1982, he secured the cooperation of Ansel Adams in establishing the Center for Creative Photography.
This retrospective of Schaefer's work features one hundred examples of his exquisite black-and-white photographymost of them gelatin silver printsin subjects ranging from landscapes and peoples of the Southwest to images captured around the world. In studies of Mission San Xavier del Bac, details of cactus spines, and faces of Tarahumara children, appreciators of lenscraft will find ample evidence of Schaefer's sensitivity and skill.
