Ansel Adams (1902-1984) is one of the most renowned and influential 20th century landscape photographers.


Adams’ photographic style, which fuses personal vision, technical precision and environmental advocacy, has had an unparalleled influence, not only on the development of photography as an art form, but also on how we see and think about the landscape today.

Spanning a period of fifty years, from the 1920s to the 1970s, this timely exhibition includes Adams’ photographs of the magnificent landscapes for which he is most celebrated, from the soaring monoliths of Yosemite National Park to the lakes and mountains of Alaska. Hand-printed and selected by Adams from an archive of over 40,000 negatives during the last years of his life, this set of over seventy photographs are the images by which he wanted to be remembered.
