About Ansel Adams and original prints


General Photography

Not everybody is excited about Ansel Adams. I’m not. A.D. Coleman isn’t, either: “a few dozen ‘new’ Adams images from his early days won’t force any serious reconsideration of his already exhaustively overconsidered and vastly overestimated oeuvre. The thought of yet another Adams book and show makes me cringe reflexively.” The post also contains a longer discussion what exactly an “original print” is. That might strike many as an exercise in semantics, but it’s interesting to see how the topic typically is approached.
