Perhaps no photographer’s work has enjoyed such popularity as Ansel Adams’s awe-inspiring views of the natural world. His early trips to the Yosemite wilderness in the 1910s, 1920s and 1930s informed the stylistic approach that made him famous. These treks included not only the physical activities of hiking, camping, and mountain climbing, but also social, intellectual, cultural, and spiritual elements. With forty photographs and supporting documents from the Ansel Adams Archive, Ansel Adams: The View from Here explores the relationship between Adams’s magical photographs of the American landscape – both its panoramic vistas and its intimate details – and how he came to understand the importance of his natural environment.

    And if this exhibition moves you, like it does many, and you have the desire to walk in Ansel’s shoes, my ‘Ansel Adams’ Yosemite: The Art of Seeing’ workshop may be of interest to you…http://bit.ly/ygWaPn
