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.
