Ansel Adams

No matter what generation you are a member of, if you have a love of black and white photography, you most likely have heard of and seen the works of Ansel Adams. Born in 1902 and living until 1984 Adams was a world renown photographer and environmentalist. His black and white photography, primarily of the American West, especially Yosemite Park has been reproduced in a wide array of media throughout the world.

His knowledge of black and white photography led to the formulation and development of the photographic Zone System- a way to properly expose negatives and papers to produce striking tones in the final photographic papers. The resulting prints from this allowed Ansel Adams Prints to create a new standard in the field of photographic prints.

Adams original passion was music, but after visiting the Yosemite National Park, his love of the park and photography became his lifelong passion. The first time Ansel Adams photos were sold in 1922 by Best’s Gallery. It took seven more years for Adams to conclude his future would be in selling prints than as a pianist.

In 1931 there was an exhibit of Ansel Adams Photos at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC. Shortly thereafter his portfolios began selling on a regular basis. 1941 brought a contract with the Department of Interior to photograph the national parks and Indian reservations. It was during this time that one of the most famous Ansel Adams Photos was created- Moonrise. In 2006 Sotheby’s New York Auction an Ansel Adams Print of Moonrise for $609,600

In 1952 Adams was a founder of the magazine Aperture, which became a showcase for serious photography. In June 1955, Adams began what would be known as the workshops, for other inspiring photographers.

In the 1960s, for the first time, Framed Ansel Adams prints made their way to mainstream galleries on the east coast. In 1974 the Metropolitan Museum of Art featured a major retrospective of Ansel Adams Prints. Most of the 1970s, and the remainder of his career was spent making prints from his vault of negatives to fill the demands for his work from museums, galleries, and collectors.

The legacy of Ansel Adams Photos continues know through not only his original photographic prints, but through framed Ansel Adams prints that hang in residences and businesses throughout the world.
