ANSEL ADAMS’ BEST, IN HIS OPINION

Georgia O'Keefe and ranch hand. Ansel Adams © 2011 The Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust

This photograph is one of 70 from The Museum Set portfolio,  a collection of hand printed images by Adams that he considered to be his best work. While the portfolio includes images most frequently associated with Adams, it also contains portraits and architectural imagery. Thanks to his daughter, Anne Adams Helms, “Classic Images: Ansel Adams” can be seen at Lake County Discovery Museum in Wauconda, Illinois through January 8, 2012. If you’re in the Chicago area, you won’t want to miss this exhibit.
