The photographs of the Meredith Collection are original works of legendary American photographer Ansel Adams (1902-1984). Documenting the arc of his prolific career between the late 1920s and the early 1980s, the collection includes early works as Adams first explored his medium, and masterworks from his most productive period dating from the late 1930s through the 1950s. This exhibition reveals Adams' passionate devotion to the American landscape and the technical precision that defined his work. Adams had a profound impact on the medium, coupling photography's unique capacity to capture a singular perception with his recognition of the beauty, importance, and fragility of the landscapes he recorded.
