Last year two of my photos were featured, ‘The National’ as well as ‘A Wilhelm Scream’. If you are in the Toronto area please come out!
PBS America - Ansel Adams - A Documentary Film
"Ric Burns’s documentary offers an elegant portrait of Ansel Adams, the pioneering photographer and environmentalist whose work made millions of Americans aware of the beauty of their own land.
Ansel Adams first encountered the awesome majesty of Yosemite Valley as a teenager in 1916. This youthful awakening to the sublime nature of the wilderness signified the start of Adams’s mission to utilise the power of photography to reveal mankind’s place in the natural world. His work vividly depicted the beauty and fragility of the American earth, the inseparable bond of man and nature and our moral obligation to respect the land for the benefit of future generations. In his later years, Adams was one of the most recognised photographers in the world, eliciting the kind of popular response afforded to very few others in his profession. He unashamedly took advantage of his popularity to raise public awareness of the wilderness and the importance of the environment. As well as charting his dramatic accomplishments as an artist, the film provides intimate glimpses into Adams’s private life, especially his fluctuating courtship of Virginia Best, who would eventually become his wife and mother of his two children. Almost thirty years after his death, Adams’s legacy and influence on American culture remain undiminished.”
