Ansel Adams was born on February 20, 1902, in San Francisco, California. Adams rose to prominence as a photographer of the American West, particularly Yosemite National Park, using his work to promote conservation of wilderness areas. His iconic black-and-white images helped to establish photography among the fine arts. He died in Monterey, California, on April 22, 1984.

Although I enjoy a lot of Adams work, I particularly enjoy his work between 1929- and 1942 as, Adams’ work and reputation developed. Adams expanded his repertoire, focusing on detailed close-ups as well as large forms, from mountains to factories. I feel that these close ups are extremely interesting and are really interesting as it allows viewers to focus upon individual aspects in pictures and draws the eye to particular elements.
