Ansel Adams: America

Monday, 15 Jan 2007 | Photography, Travel


The last thing I did before leaving Las Vegas on Friday was visit the Bellagio Museum of Fine Art to see the Ansel Adams: America exhibit. I've been a long time fan of Ansel Adams' work. This was the second time I've had the good fortune to view real Ansel Adams prints in person. The first time was years ago at the Los Angeles Museum of Art.

Whenever I look at Adams' work, I am humbled and in awe of his ability to create the perfect composition and capture a scene in such breathtaking fashion. The detail in his prints is wonderful. If you love photography, you should make it a point to see his work for yourself. It's definitely worth the effort.

I respect Ansel Adams because he was such a patient photographer. Patient in a way that I seldom am. He was known to wait all day in one location to capture the subject in just the right fleeting light and would carry forty pounds of equipment hiking at Yosemite National Park. I would be pleased if I could attain a small fraction of his talent in my lifetime.
