Artist Spotlight: Ansel Adams

Welcome to the Artist Spotlight, a weekly look at an artists, living or dead, who we find interesting and think you may too. We'll share a little about them and their work and let you decided how you feel. 

With our first juried show having the theme of Black & White: 2017, I couldn't help but think of a man who made black and white iconic with his deft and dramatic use of it in landscape photography. 

Ansel Adams (from Wikipedia):

 Ansel Easton Adams was an American photographer and environmentalist. His black and white landscape photographs of the American West, especially Yosemite National Park, have been widely reproduced on calendars, posters, books, and the internet.
