University of Arizona’s Curator photography center resigns

Chief curator of the University of Arizona’s Center for Creative Photography Joshua Chuang has resigned after less than 2 years on the job.

He became a part of the CCP in January 2014, coming from Yale University Art Gallery. There he worked as associate curator of photography as well as digital media.
Chuang, who is in Europe and was not able to be arrived at, paced a spot that had been empty since the year 2009, when Britt Salvesen, who worked as both director and chief curator, stepped down from his position. University of Arizona’s spokesman Chris Sigurdson said that they have no plans as of now to look for his successor.
Meanwhile, David Steen, who is considered one of the top Fleet Street photographers of his generation, has passed away, aged 79. His archive accounts a who’s who of ethnical wizards from the 60s. He stated his career, when he was just fifteen year old, with Picture Post working with Bert Hardy as his assistant.
He came back to Picture Post after national service, as he was based in Egypt and dealing conflict areas, before going to Woman’s Sunday Mirror. He won 1st prize in Encyclopaedia Britannica’s top pictures of the year when he was just 21 years of age – for photographs of a woman delivering her own baby under hypnosis. After that he worked as a staff photographer for Daily Mail before turning freelancer.
Whenever he was asked by aspiring photographers for his tips, his reply always was: ‘Get up early.’”
