It's impossible to think about Yosemite Valley without Ansel Adams coming to mind. The photographer's countless breathtaking images of that location, and others in the western United States, shaped our perception of the region and landscape photography in general. But artists continue to bring their own experiences…
Ansel Adams is renowned for his stunning, black-and-white photographs of landscapes in the American West. But, in 1943, he documented one of the most shameful events in U.S. history.
Rick Norsigian found a couple of boxes full of glass negatives at a yard sale and bought them for $45, negotiated down from $70, 10 years ago. Now, he's discovered that they're early photographs of Ansel Adams worth $200 million.
