Ansel Adams Seen Through a New Lens

  • The College of William & Mary Sadler Center, 200 Stadium Drive Williamsburg, VA, 23186 United States (map)

Now a century after Ansel Adams took his first photograph, we almost cannot see nature except through his eyes. Yet those photographs showed the world a nature it had never seen before: a revolutionary, brilliant refocusing on the Wilderness, the Whole Wilderness, and Nothing but the Wilderness. It was a radical act of the human imagination, to which we are all heirs today. In this course of striking masterworks and commentary, we shall seek to regain that radical vision, to see afresh through the lens of our greatest photographic artist.
