Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams (1902-1984), American, photographer. Adams was born in San Francisco, California an only child of older parents. His youth was spent not quite fitting in and feeling most at ease in nature and at the piano bench. For years, Adams trained and planned to be a professional musician. It was his intense love of nature and wilderness that brought him to photography.

Adams joined the Sierra Club in 1919 and was linked with the group for the rest of his life. Adams and the Sierra Club were a perfect match. His honest desire to protect and represent wilderness and nature were coupled the club’s desire to promote environmentalism and conservancy. Indeed, Adams’ first published photographs appeared in the Sierra Club’s Bulletin in 1922 and the first solo showing of his work was at the club’s headquarters in San Francisco, in 1928. Adams was tireless in the pursuit of his craft often working 15 hours a day for weeks at a time. He studied the technical aspects of photography and admired and learned from the masters of the art, like Alfred Stieglitz and Edward Weston. He created the Zone System which allowed him to enhance the elements of the photographs that he wanted and present truly unique and personal creations.

Adams’ love of the National Parks, especially Yosemite and the Sierra Nevadas, comes through in his photos. His ability to turn his lifelong love of nature into photographs that the public could truly appreciate was the result of years of study and hard work, and his natural genius. His photos of Half Dome and the Yosemite Valley are icons of the environmental movement, but they are also burned into the consciousness of ordinary people the world over. Even an Oak Tree or Birds on a Beach were brought to a majestic level through his techniques. The grandeur of nature is composed in black and white for all who see his photographs.
