Capital in the frame for Ansel Adams exhibition
- 13 November 2007
Edinburgh has been selected as the only UK venue to host an exhibition of work by acclaimed US landscape photographer Ansel Adams next year.
More than 150 original images from New York’s international photography museum will be hosted by the City Art Centre.
Two of the photographer’s cameras will also be on display.
John Stout, marketing manager for the City Art Centre, said: ‘Some people will be surprised that Adams did not confine himself to landscapes, but also made portraits and other subjects into images nearly as monumental as his beloved mountain ranges.
‘It’s an extraordinarily powerful exhibition of a photographer’s relationship with the environment.
‘People in Edinburgh should definitely take the chance to see it before it returns to the archives.’
Ansel Adams: Celebration of Genius will run from 9 February – 19 April 2008.
