THE EXHIBITION was organised by Modern Art Oxford where it first showed in April. It includes 70 landscapes from over five decades – 1920s to 1970s – which were, significantly, printed by the photographer himself towards the end of his life.
Not many have matched Adams’ bravura technical skills. The director of the The New Art Gallery Walsall, Stephen Snoddy, said of the photographs: ‘Exquisite in their formal and tonal beauty, his awe-inspiring and magnificent images express the grandeur of untouched nature. Adams celebrated the vast spaces of the American West with a synergy of aesthetic vision and technical brilliance.’
If you’re based in Germany, you can see this exhibition at the next stop of its tour - at the Bergen Kunstmuseum, from 11 September - 1 December 2008.
