Ansel Adams: Distance and Detail

When: Sept. 15-Dec. 15 2016

SPONSORED -- Ansel Adams (American, 1902-1984), photographer, environmentalist, and social activist is recognized as one of America's foremost photographers. His life's work established photography as a truly legitimate art form, inspiring new ways of seeing and communicating. His long career represents a prolific and rich contribution to American art including many hundreds of images that continue to profoundly influence the practice of the art of photography to this day. Ansel Adams: Distance and Detail, offers an opportunity to view thirty of Adams’ works including pieces as well known as Moonrise over Hernandez alongside his lesser known studies of architectural subjects such as the Spanish Catholic Missions in Arizona. The exhibition combines the distant views for which Adams is exalted as well as his lesser known work showing close-up and personal interpretations of the photographer's complete vision of the natural world.
