Art Out: Ansel Adams
Images by Yanika Anukulpun
Robert Mann Gallery presents work by Ansel Adams, ranging from vintage prints dating back to the artist’s very early career in the 1920’s, to extraordinary and unique masterpieces of his most iconic images such as Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico and Aspens, Northern New Mexico. Since 1977, Robert Mann has been a preeminent source for Adam’s work with a history of exhibiting some of the finest examples. Through refined detail and an unparalleled way of capturing the country's remaining fragments of untouched wilderness, Adams remains one of the leading and enduring influences in American art today.
Adams’ photographic legacy is tied to his dedicated environmental work alongside The Sierra Club and The Wilderness Society to defend wild spaces of the West and establish new national parks. Adams was able to convey the spirit of these landscapes through his skillful technical ability to visualize an image and produce a photograph that matched and expressed that visualization. His ability to find perfection in the darkroom coupled with his work behind a camera, has produced some of the greatest landscape photography ever made. This exhibition will display a collection of photographs brought together using a rigorously connoisseurial approach to find works that excel in subtle variations in tonality and contrast, along with pristine physical condition that define Adams’ most distinguished prints.
