Ansel Adams

I was lucky enough to catch the Ansel Adams exhibit at the Detroit Institute of Arts. It is taking place in the basement where it was delightfully packed on Sunday afternoon. The photographs themselves varied widely from naturescapes to candid portraits to everyday objects and curiosities. Today we would take most of these pictures to be commonplace, but given the time in which they were taken, manipulated, and developed, his talents were undeniable. As I had mentioned in one of my comments, this exhibit has a Michigan connection in that photographer Monte Nagler studied under Adams and captures the beauty of this particular state in a lovely Anselesque way.

    I also saw this exhibit a few weeks ago — I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys great photography. While many of the shots are less well-known, they are all simply spectacular. It’s a great way to spend a few hours in the D.
