Yesterday we visited Photography from the Mountains to the Sea exhibition at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. It was a really good exhibion with black and white landscape photos taken by Ansel Adams, one of the masters of American art of photography, in Yosemite National Park between 1915-1984.
Most earlier work of him in the exhibition, was a photo captured when he was 13. He worked almost during all his life, until his death in this park with his 4x5 inches camera and took beautiful pictures of landscapes. He was a naturelover and even he was critisied by other photographers for taking the pictures of rocks and trees instead of taking documental photos during the hard ages of humanity, he just photographed the nature.
In the exhibition, there are also two documental films of 8min 34’ and 6min 40’ about this big artist and his art. Don’t miss this exhibition which will be open until 28 April 2013.
