Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams passed away on April 22, 1984. I wrote a little about him and how he influenced me here:

I said then I would have more to say later but I really don't... (must be that visual artist thing)

The people at Calumet put together this kind article about Mr. Adams so I link to it here and recommend you read it:

Mr. James Alinder granted me permission to display this photograph and caption from the article:

Used with permission by James G. Alinder: http://www.alindergallery.com/
"(c) James Alinder. Jim recounts Ansel describing these photos, “The print on the left is a straight image. No dodging and burning. This is what Ansel saw on that November afternoon in 1941. And the print on the right is what he felt.”"

Being a photographer who loves black and white I can say, YES! That's the way it is.
