Ansel Adams scholar Rebecca Senf recently published Making a Photographer: The Early Work of Ansel Adams, a new book on the acclaimed photographer that looks at the source of his lifelong investments in landscape and environmentalism. She will discuss how his early experiences connected him to the wilderness and how his decades of thinking about nature and photography led to the creation of his celebrated signature style. Her talk will feature his iconic images and lesser-known early works and will provide a sense of who Ansel Adams was and how that influenced who he came to be.
