Description:
This category is an attempt to document the exact locations that became the subjects of the great photographer, Ansel Adams.
Expanded Description:

Ansel Adams (1902-1984)

One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century, Ansel Adams produced some of the most enduring photographic images of the Western United States.

 

 

Probably best remembered for his photographs of Yosemite and the Sierra in California, he will also be remembered, not only for his powerful black and white images, but also as an ardent supporter of environmental causes.  He served on the Sierra Club Board from 1934-1971 as an articulate spokesman for the club and with the use of his images, pushed the importance of preserving wilderness areas for future generations.  As a tribute to his vision, both on film and in representing the Sierra Club, the Minaret Wilderness in the Central Sierra was renamed The Ansel Adams Wilderness in 1984.

 

Here's a brief sample of Ansel Adams best known works:

Monolith, Face of Half Dome (1927)

Clearing Winter Storm (1937)

Moonrise Over Hernandez (1941)

Nevada Falls, Rainbow (1946)

Mt. Williamson (?)

Maroon Bells (1951)
