Building Form: Ansel Adams & Architecture

August 15 - October 18, 1998

Renowned photographer Ansel Adams was the authority in using the visual elements of line, form, texture, pattern, and contrast when building form in his photographic compositions. His passion for this creative approach is clear in Building Form: Ansel Adams and Architecture.

Covering Adam's career from the 1920s to the late 1960s, the exhibition includes 48 photographs that range from photos of architecture situated within the larger realm of landscape to photos whose focus is solely on architectural form.
