Ansel Adams Collection

In conjunction with the exhibition Ansel Adams: Masterworks (on display through April 15), the Museum Store is currently featuring a wide selection of prints, notecards, postcards and books of the famed photographer. Adams had the ability to capture the unique drama and splendor of natural environments that might not, to the ordinary passing hiker, have revealed their secrets.


He profoundly influenced the course of 20th century photography not only through the example of his sumptuous and technically precise images, but also by means of his personal energy and devotion to advancing the cause of photography as an art form.
