KMA Unveils a New Exhibition of Ansel Adams’ Photographs

by Heather Joyner Spica, February 19, 2014

Work by the 20th-century photography titan Ansel Adams is so familiar to so many people that it can be taken for granted. Nevertheless, relatively few gallery-goers have seen more than a few images from Adams’ sole foray into the southern Appalachian mountains in the fall of 1948. Sight and Feeling, a newly opened exhibition at […]


More than 80 images represent the best of Adams’ prolific career. Indianapolis, Indiana (PRWEB) February 18, 2014 Before he became known as the creator of some of the most influential photographs ever taken, Ansel Adams was a restless teenager with a simple Kodak camera. It was a 1916 family vacation in the Yosemite Valley that […]

by Brett Turner, Contributing Writer, Springfield News Sun February 12, 2014

Museum of Art exhibit opens on Friday. It’s easy to take photographs for granted when we can take a high definition picture on a cell phone.

Crater of Haleakala by Ansel Adams

Asked to name a state particularly associated with the painter Georgia O’Keeffe, most people would point without hesitation to New Mexico, and particularly to the high desert region surrounding her residences at Ghost Ranch and in Abiquiú. The same question about the photographer Ansel Adams would doubtless invite the response of California, thanks to his […]

Ansel Adams exhibit was a natural fit

by January 25, 2014

GLENS FALLS — When Erin Coe envisioned last summer’s “Modern Nature: Georgia O’Keeffe and Lake George” show, the idea of The Hyde Collection following it with “Ansel Adams: Early Works” never entered the picture. But with the Adams show, paired with another photographic exhibition now open at The Hyde through April 19, the connection seems […]

by Anne Pautler, UCLA Magazine December 18, 2013

Decades ago, the legendary photographer trained his camera’s eye on the University of California campuses and took hundreds of shots of UCLA. Much has changed since then — and much has not.

One of Ansel Adams‘ pet peeves was when Alan Ross would forget to turn off a battery-powered digital thermometer in the dark room.
