At a Glance

Ansel Adams was so much more than ‘just’ a gifted photographer. Join filmmaker and writer James Dalessandro as he turns his focus on this staunch environmentalist and member of the Sierra Club. Learn how Ansel’s photography of the American West helped lead an artistic movement that bucked against the West Coast passion for manipulating images to a photographer’s will. Study Ansel’s ushering in of the “Zone” system that enhanced and expanded nature’s stunning beauty and symmetry. And find out how his contract with the Department of the Interior led to the expansion of our National Parks and even a Presidential Medal of Freedom.
