Ansel Adams (1902-1984)Ansel Adams

Nature - Landscapes

Biography: Born in 1902 in San Francisco, Ansel Adams served as one of the first photographers to capture the spirit of the American west on film. His portfolios include an extensive study of the small and grand details of Yosemite National Park, the Big Sur Coast, the Sierra Nevada, the American Southwest and America's National Parks.His work also includes portraiture, architectural studies, and commercial illustration. The diversity, evolution in style, and the historical context of his work makes Ansel Adams one of the most prolific and historically significant photographers of our time.

Ansel Adams died in April 1984. His wife, Virginia, passed away in January 2000. Michael and Jeanne Adams continue to own and operate The Ansel Adams Gallery as a family owned business.

Today, you can view Ansel's images through his books, posters, boxed note card sets, and Special Edition Photographs. A large collection of his original photographs (printed and signed by Ansel, himself), may be viewed and purchased at each of The Ansel Adams Gallery locations.
