Ansel Adams – “The Early Years” at Botanic Gardens, now through October 11

Discover the early work of renowned landscape photographer Ansel Adams in this exhibition of intimate yet majestic photos of the American West.  Known best for his high-contrast photos made in the 1970s and 1980s, Adams’ earlier prints feature a softer focus, smaller scale and warmer tones, providing a glimpse into the evolution of the photographer’s signature style. This collection spans the 1920s-1950s and features a number of Adams’ finest photographs of Yosemite National Park and other Western landscapes.
