Over 100 of Adams’s finest photographs, carefully selected from public and private collections across the USA will arrive at the National Maritime Museum in November.
From the NMM: “Ansel Adams (1902–1984) is arguably the most popular and the most influential photographer in American history. This spectacular exhibition explores Adams’s unique approach to photography by featuring – for the first time – pictures of water in all its forms.
Fluid, ephemeral, and unpredictable, water was the ideal subject for photographic experimentation. Adams returned to water again and again, capturing seascapes, rapids, waterfalls, geysers, clouds, ice and snow, placid ponds and raging rivers, producing some of the most striking images of his career. Combining some of the most famous works of the 20th century with stunning, lesser-known or seldom seen examples, the exhibition will provide a new context for enjoying the work of this important artist and for understanding his legacy.”
Another reason to head to Greenwich would be to see The Astronomer Photographer of the Year 2012 which is on until Feb 17, 2013.
