Water was one of the favourite subjects of the great American photographer Ansel Adams (1902-84), best known for his detailed black-and-white landscapes that capture the epic spaces of the US continent.
Assembling one of the largest collections of Adams prints, the Maritime Museum brings the spectacular work of this brilliant pioneering modernist to Australian audiences. The exhibition will combine famous images with lesser-known works that focus on the artist’s exploration of water in all its forms.
Full of energy and dynamism, Adams’ photographs of mountains, clouds and waterfalls, seascapes, bays and tide pools, provide a fresh perspective on a celebrated photographer.
