Ansel Adams: At the Water’s Edge
National Maritime Museum, 1 November 2012–21 April 2013
Ansel Adams is widely recognised as one of the most influential landscape photographers of the 20th century. This major retrospective focuses on his life-long fascination with water, and is one of the largest exhibitions of his work ever to be staged in the UK. Ansel Adams: At the Water’s Edge brings together some of the finest examples of Adams’s work from across his career and features images of seascapes, rapids, waterfalls, geysers, clouds, ice, snow, placid ponds and raging rivers, many of them previously unseen.
The photographs are drawn almost entirely from the superlative collection of the Ansel Adams Archive at the Center for Creative Photography, University of Arizona, as well as other public and private collections in the United States. The exhibition opens at the Peabody Essex Museum, Massachusetts, before travelling to the National Maritime Museum. Including some of the most famous photographs of the 20th century along with pictures that have never before been publicly displayed, the exhibition provides a new context for enjoying this important artist and his legacy.
