See Ansel Adams from a new perspective in the exhibition “Ansel Adams in Our Time,” which considers his work in the context of what came before and after. Adams’ black-and-white photographs are displayed alongside prints by 19th-century government survey photographers who greatly influenced his work, as well as work by contemporary artists whose modern-day concerns—the environment, land rights, the use and misuse of natural resources—point directly to Adams’ legacy. Consider the role photography has played, and continues to play, in our changing perceptions of the American landscape. The workshop includes a curatorial lecture followed by guided tours of the exhibition.
