In 1916, a fourteen year-old Ansel Adams (1902-1984) began to capture the beauty of the West. Adams’ subsequent body of work – over 40,000 photographs – influenced the practice of countless photographers and played an instrumental role in the rise of the environmental movement in the United States. Ansel Adams and the Photographers of the West is an intimate look at seven iconic works by Adams as well as thirty nine photographs by twelve other artists, including Edward Weston, Brett Weston, Eliot Porter, Laura Gilpin, Philip Hyde, and William Garnett.
