Description“The symposium ‘Variations on a Theme’ complemented the 2006 exhibition Harry Callahan: The Photographer at Work. Taking Callahan's belief that ‘you could have a whole man's life in a body of photography’ as a departure point, it was the first in a series of projects dedicated to the theme ‘the photographer at work.’ The present publication continues another Center series, The Archive, begun in 1976 and dedicated to presenting new, primarily collections-based research on photographic history. Encouraged by our Board of Fellows, we saw the Callahan symposium as an excellent opportunity to relaunch The Archive and highlight key aspects of our mission. ‘Variations on a Theme’ demonstrated how art and archives illuminate each other; recognized creativity and rigor in scholarship and artistic practice; and fostered dialogue between curators, scholars, artists, and members of the public.” (From the introduction to the Archive, no. 35.)
