A special exhibition of antique and contemporary mining photographs will run through July 31 at Tubac Presidio SHP. What do mines look like in the 21st century? What equipment is used? What do miners and their families really do?

These photographs depict aspects of mining from tracks and equipment, mine pits, blasting sites, mine ruins, to how miners and their families live with the good and bad of one of mankind’s oldest occupations. The 50-piece photographic collection is an international exhibition with photographers from Hermosillo, Alamos, Tucson, Ruby, Tempe and Phoenix. The collection reveals historic, intimate and contemporary stories of mining in Arizona and Sonora by 20 photographers who traveled throughout the region to provide unique perspectives of this industry and its communities. Admission to the exhibit is included in Park admission: $5 adult, $2 youth (7–13), children free. For more information please call (520) 398-2252.
