Ansel Adams’ 1947 masterpiece captured in Denali National Park, Alaska
Collectors have found the gallery’s “Modern Replicas” a welcome addition to the options for collecting the work of Ansel Adams. The prints’ quality is on par with the contemporary photographs using the latest printing techniques. For the collection, the gallery have chosen prints from the collections of the Ansel Adams family and the Ansel Adams Archive at the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona.
Now the gallery is introducing a print of the majestic image “Mt. McKinley, Wonder Lake” taken in Denali National Park, Alaska in 1947.
The photo of Mount McKinley with Wonder Lake in the foreground was taken in the summer while Adams was in Alaska on a Guggenheim Fellowship trip. It was one of the rare cloudless days of that summer in Alaska. Adams and his son Michael spent a week in the ranger station waiting for the right conditions. The image was ultimately captured with his trusty 8×10 camera at 1:30 in the morning.
The print is available in sizes from 8×10” to 30×38” printed on heavy paper that mimics the look and feel of gelatin silver paper. It is shipped dry mounted to an acid-free foam core backer. The 8-ply overmats are museum quality acid-free rag board, also hinge mounted to the backer. The prints are also available framed in both Valley Wood or Matte Black.
