Info: Ansel Easton Adams was an American landscape photographer and environmentalist known for his black-and-white images of the American West. Ansel Adams had deep roots in Yosemite. In fact, you’ve likely seen some of his iconic black and white photographs of the park. Adams was a life-long advocate for environmental conservation, and his photographic practice was deeply entwined with this advocacy. At age 12, he was given his first camera —a gift from his dad— during his first visit to Yosemite National Park. The model was a Kodak Brownie. Adams was a key advisor in establishing the photography department at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, an important landmark in securing photography’s institutional legitimacy.
