“Ansel Adams discovered that the natural world is infinitely varied in aspect, constantly potential, evanescent; that its grand vistas and its microcosms are never twice the same; that the landscape is not only a place but an event”
Se está a planear a viagem a Londres para ver a exposição da National Portrait Gallery, aproveite e programe algum tempo extra para passar pela Modern Art Oxford para ver a exposição ‘Ansel Adams: Photographs‘.
O ‘Telegraph’ publicou um artigo sobre esta exposição com um olhar sobre o homem por trás destas imagens icónicas:
“The Oxford exhibition marks the first public showing in Britain of the so-called “museum set”, the 75 pictures earmarked by Adams himself in 1979 as those that best represented his achievement as a photographer. All of his most famous landscapes are included, each one a masterclass in scale and light. Here is the glittering Snake river meandering through Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, captured at the exact instant when the storm clouds skimming the distant peaks blotted out the sun.”
