Ansel Adams Sold at Auction Prices

Photographer, b. 1902 - d. 1984

Ansel Adams' artwork might never have become the American standard in nature photography had he pursued his original career plans. Finding school difficult, the only child was home-tutored, teaching himself to play piano and read music at age 12. His plans to become a musician changed in 1927 when he took the photograph that would change his course. The photographer Ansel Adams came into being with Monolith, the Face of Half Dome, Yosemite National Park, California (1927). His use of a red filter allowed him to capture a photo of the rock face capturing an emotional aspect.

His theory of visualization in which the photographer plans each element before taking the picture made Ansel Adams' artwork unique. Still taught today, his ideas on photography revolutionized the genre. The emotion evoked when viewing Ansel Adams' landscapes for sale can be attributed to this technique. Fill your home with serene, collectible landscape photography found online at Invaluable.

                "Ansel Adams (1902-1984) was an American photographer and environmentalist known for his stunning black-and-white landscape photographs of the American West, particularly Yosemite National Park. He was one of the most influential photographers of the 20th century and played a significant role in establishing photography as a legitimate art form. Adams was born in San Francisco and developed a passion for nature and photography at an early age. He began his career as a professional photographer in the 1920s, and over the years, his work evolved and became more focused on capturing the natural beauty of the American wilderness. Adams was a master of the large-format camera and is renowned for his technical expertise and meticulous attention to detail. He developed the ""Zone System,"" a technique for determining proper exposure and tonal range in black-and-white photography. This system allowed him to achieve exceptional tonal range and detail in his photographs, resulting in images with striking contrasts and incredible depth. One of Adams' most famous photographs is ""Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico"" (1941), which captures a dramatic scene of a moon rising over a small town. The photograph is a testament to Adams' ability to capture a fleeting moment and create a timeless image. His photographs often showcased the grandeur and sublime beauty of nature, emphasizing the importance of conservation and environmental awareness. In addition to his photography, Adams was a passionate advocate for the preservation of wilderness areas. He co-founded the group f/64, which championed the use of large-format photography and promoted the idea of ""pure"" photography, unmanipulated by commercial or pictorial trends. Adams' images and writings helped raise public awareness about the need to protect and preserve natural landscapes. Ansel Adams' work continues to inspire photographers and art enthusiasts alike. His photographs are celebrated for their technical excellence, emotional impact, and their ability to evoke a sense of awe and reverence for the natural world. Adams' contributions to both photography and environmental conservation have left a lasting legacy. Measures 5.6 x 7 Printed circa 1970s Verso is blank. Mounted to archival quality paper.
