“The Famous Photographer”

Eagèrneśš

Ansel Easton Adams (February 20, 1902 – April 22, 1984) born in San Francisco, California, US was an American photographer and environmentalist.

His black-and-white landscape photographs of the American West, especially Yosemite National Park, have been widely reproduced on calendars, posters, books, and the internet.

Adams initiated the photography group known as Group f/64, along with fellow photographers Willard Van Dyke and Edward Weston.

His first photographs were published in 1921, and Best’s Studio began selling his Yosemite prints the next year.

Adams’s first portfolio was a success, earning nearly $3,900 with the sponsorship and promotion of Albert Bender, an arts-associated businessman.

Adams became interested in piano at age 12, and music became the main focus of his later youth.
