This looks interesting for anyone who can make it there, and for those of us who can't we can enjoy the pictures in the link.

Boring, reminds me of the comments I read the other day about the exhibition at Somerset House, the world famous photographer who took those does not understand colour!

Excellent, one of my favourite photographers. My bookshelves have several beautiful books, printed Duotone, of fine images by Adams.
Best regards, John

I think you might be wrong Algi. Adams's attention to detail was extraordinary.
Best regards, John

True but even he had sloping horizons!

I take your point, on the face of it it seems to be true. However, if you look at all the Adams books then it clearly isn't true. So, it may depend on who has made these images for the exhibition.

I saw a David Bailey exhibition in Aberystwyth and the quality of the prints was a disgrace. I assumed that they had been reprinted, even copied, but it is difficult to draw a conclusion.
Best regards, John

Love his work and still as important today, unfortunately I cannot go to that exhibition.

I recently went to the Warhol exhibition in hull which is on until new year and is free to go in. Fascinating stuff and a lot of his photography is on show

Hadn't seen that before. Very clear view of what was in
his darkroom

How did he manage without Fast AF

Did he ever move over to a Full Frame Camera

Im a bit of an Ansell Adams fan - I have read a few of his books/ books about him but don't own any

I still have the documentary about him on sky + to watch - had to go to bed part way through watching it
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Dropped in on this last weekend as down the road from me... 7 entrance... thoroughly recommend a visit... well laid out and very thoughtfully curated... all original prints except one I think (wonky horizons and all)... with a side room showing documentary video footage on a loop... I tend to associate Ansel Adams with colossal mountains and weather (and there's plenty of this here), so a real surprise to see the extent to which he was interested in water as an inspiration... great PBS documentary here on youtube link for those interested... great exhibition and well worth a visit... on till end of April 2013..
