Ansel Adams had a vision of preserving America’s wild and scenic areas. He achieved this as a photographer and an environmentalist. In 1930, Adams met American photographer Paul Strand. After viewing Strand’s work, Adams adopted simplicity in his images. In 1932, after Adams founded the Group f.64 association of West Coast photographers, sharp black and white images became synonymous with the group’s identity.
In its upcoming auction, Sotheby’s will present the David H. Arrington Collection of Ansel Adams Photographs. Some of these works are rare to find and have been sourced directly from Adams’ family. An edition of Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico lived in Adams’ family home. It will now be presented at auction for the first time. Most of Adams’ work depicts the hidden geographies of the American West. Many pictures that depict Yosemite National Park will also be available.
