Ansel Adams

American photographer and environmentalist - Ansel Adams has been long overdue to be mentioned on this blog.

He was the first photographer to grip my imagination as a child when waiting in Olivers Dentist, Sunderland, and his photographs still hang on the walls to this day.

Best known for his black & white photography of Yosemite National Park, Adams captures the real beauty and depth of nature.

This is an ode to a legendary photographer who continues to inspire long after his passing.

"A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed." Ansel Adams
