Ansel Adams: Early Works is on view September 5, 2009 February 28, 2010 at the San Jose Museum of Art. Ansel Adams photographer, musician, naturalist, explorer, critic and teacher was a giant in the field of landscape photography and a native Californian. This exhibition focuses on the masterful, small-scale prints made by Adams from the 1920s to the 1950s. During this time, Adamss printing style evolved from his soft-focus, warm-toned, painterly Parmelian prints of the 1920s; through the sharp-focused photography of the f/64 school that he co-founded with Edward Weston and Imogen Cunningham in the 1930s; to the cooler, higher-contrast approach he embraced thereafter.
