You can now afford to own an Ansel Adams photograph, courtesy of the Ansel Adams Gallery. Archival replica prints from the master photographer are now available starting at $79.
These are digital reproductions of photographs from the combined collections of the Adams family and the Center for Creative Photography at the University of Arizona, where Ansel Adamsâ€™ archive resides. Available for sale to the public are seven images that he created between 1930 and 1955, including photographs made in Yosemite National Park, Kings Canyon National Park, Canyon de Chelly, at Point Sur and of the Marin Headlands.
This is made possible through an imaging process so advanced that, other than The Ansel Adams Gallery, only the Getty Museum and Smithsonian Institution are now using it. The technology gives the Archival Replicas the full range of tone and hue of gelatin silver prints, according to Matthew Adams, grandson of the master.
The Archival Replicas range in size from 7 by 9â€ to 30 by 38â€ and cost from $79 to $999, depending upon size, mounting, matting and framing.
