Ansel Adams

American photographer, born in San Francisco, Ansel Adams is one of the pioneers of photography.
He made his first photographs in 1916 in Yosemite National Park, California. From the beginning, he showed a passion for America's magnificent landscapes. Intended to become a pianist, his meeting with Paul Strand in 1930 would leave an indelible mark on him, confirming his vision of a photography that was pure and devoid of artifice.

In 1932, Ansel Adams founded the now famous "f/64" group with exceptional photographers such as Edward Weston, John Paul Edwards and Williard van Dyke. Their line of conduct: close the diaphragm to its maximum - that of the photographic cameras of the time - and capture the landscapes with the greatest precision and the smallest details, thanks to a depth of field extending from the foreground to infinity.

Ansel Adams will devote a large part of his life - and work - to American national parks. Through the purity of his images, he will contribute to their preservation and arouse the general public's enthusiasm for nature, even encouraging the creation of new protected areas. All the photographs of Ansel Adams National Parks together make up 24 albums.
