Corcoran Gallery of Art

The Corcoran Gallery of Art will mount an exhibition of photographs by Ansel Adams in Washington, D.C. from September 15, 2007 to January 27, 2008.

Ansel Adams will give visitors a new look at the work of this important and influential artist through more than 125 images on loan from The Lane Collection – the largest private collection of works by Adams in existence, acquired directly from the artist by the late William H. and Saundra Lane.

Alongside several of Adams’ iconic landscapes, Ansel Adams will present rarely exhibited prints – offering new insight into one of the few photographers in the history of the medium whose name and images enjoy worldwide recognition. Although best known for his dramatic black and white vistas of the American West, Adams (1902 – 1984) was a versatile photographer who made portraits of artist friends, close-up nature views, striking architectural and urban views and documentary images. This exhibition takes a broad and inclusive look at Adams’ work, with particular emphasis on his early career.

Ansel Adams is arranged chronologically in several sections: Early Work (including photographs of the High Sierra, Canadian Rockies, and Pueblo Indians), Group f/64: Exploring Straight Photography, Yosemite, The American Southwest, Alfred Stieglitz and New York, The National Parks, and Late Work.
