Forty early works by legendary master of American landscape photography, Ansel Adams (1902-1984), will offer a fresh look at key images by the artist from the 1920s through the 1950s. The exhibition will illustrate the evolution of Adams’ style, from the warm-toned, painterly images of the 1920s, to the sharp-focused” straight photography: work that is associated with his co-founding of Group f/64 with Edward Weston and Imogen Cunningham in the 1930s; and, after the War, toward a cooler, higher-contrast style.

All photographs are from the collection of Michael Mattis and Judith Hochberg. The exhibition is organized by art2art Circulating Exhibitions.
