Photo Friday: Ansel Adams and the Close View

Known for his grand, expansive view of the spectacular in nature, Ansel Adams also captured nature’s “intimate” details in hundreds of photographs made throughout his career. These close-up views, from the anatomy of leaves to the murky crevice between rocks, are as captivating and inspiring as Adams's more celebrated majestic views. The December 6, 2013 Photo Friday at the Center for Creative Photography looks at some of these lesser-known but important works by Adams from the Center’s Ansel Adams Archive.

The Center will be offering guided exhibition tours with the opening of Charles Harbutt, Arrivals and Departures. Special tours are available on Friday, December 6 at 12:30pm and Friday, January 3 at 10:30am and 12:30pm. Please meet in the lobby for these 30-40 minute highlight tours with the Curator of Education.
