Ansel Adams

One of the best known nature photographers is Ansel Adams, who died in 1984. We have all seen reproductions of his photos on calendars, coffee mugs, etc., to the point where we take them for granted -- we don't see them any more. Tomorrow's travel section in The New York Times has a well-done summary of his work at Yosemite. It features nine photographs and commentary by his assistant, Andrea G. Stillman. Well worth the visit here. You may also want to read the related article.
