Buckley’s B&W imagery in Tucson photography show

Black and white photos from Daniel Buckley’s 2024 landscape series, as well as an image from the ten-year project “The Forty Seasons” with Laura Milkins, will be part of a new exhibit of Tucson photographers at the Contreras Gallery in Tucson, Arizona.

The three images will be the first prints on display by Buckley in over a decade, and the first batch of photos since the mid-1980s.

“I’m very excited to have been asked to display my work at the Contreras Gallery with the work of several very talented friends and others whose work I have not seen before,” Buckley said. “Over the past five years, I feel that my work has grown significantly stronger.”

“The Forty Seasons” is a ten-year project of environmental portraits in collaboration with performance artist Laura Milkins, with whom Buckley has worked for almost 15 years. Shot mostly in southern Arizona around the times of the solstices and equinoxes, the series is about changes in the landscape, the nation and ourselves.

The excerpt included in the Contreras Gallery show comes from the very first installment of the series, shot in Spring of 2022 in Ironwood Forest National Monument, northwest of Marana, Arizona.

The two landscape pieces featured in the show also come from Ironwood Forest National Monument – a place Buckley calls his “Fortress of Solitude.” “It is a dramatic, craggy landscape with a forest of very old saguaro cacti, “Buckley says. “It never ceases to inspire photographic creativity.”

Here are the details of the show:
