Ansel Adams: In Our Time
September 19, 2020 - January 3, 2021
This summer, take a trip across the American West through the lens of iconic American photographer Ansel Adams, together with more than 20 contemporary photographers.
For more than 50 years, Ansel Adams captured the breathtaking beauty of the country’s natural landscape in stunning black-and-white photographs. Ansel Adams: In Our Time, a new exhibition developed by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, displays Adams’s work alongside contemporary artists whose modern-day environmental concerns point directly to Adams’s legacy.
Visit national parks, the American Southwest, and desert and wilderness spaces through 180 photographs as you move back and forth in time with Ansel Adams and his contemporary successors including Mark Klett, Trevor Paglen, Catherine Opie, Abelardo Morell, Victoria Sambunaris, and Binh Danh, exploring similar themes in a changing American landscape.
This exhibition was organized by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
