A Tidal Wave of Images

Ansel Adams, 1962

The tide waits for no man...unless of course man presses the pause button. Ansel Adams (1902-1984) did just that in one of his most famous series of photography. The American photographer is famous for his evocative landscapes, which in this exhibit expose the beauty and power of the trees, mountains, and sea.

Adams's theme ranges from coastlines to geysers, and explores the force of nature's raging rapids down to its sanguine streams. To this day, he is considered a pioneer in photographic development.

Until the 28th of April at the National Maritime Museum, you can see the black and white masterpieces that Ansel Adams captured. The 'Photography From The Mountains To The Sea' gallery will be open between 10am and 5pm, with tickets £7 for adults, and £2 for children.

There are over a hundred original prints to view, scaling from the miniature to the colossal (some of his murals are three metres high).

While you're there, you can keep the kids occupied with a family activity trail pack, where they will learn more about Adams and his photography.

Amazing photo. Do you think he took it from a plane.

That's possible, or perhaps a cliff. In black and white it is a little hard to tell.

I remember "discovering" Ansel Adams in high school art class and falling in love with black and white photography. Looks like a great exhibit.
