Showcasing more than 130 photographs by famed photographer Ansel Adams, including his most iconic images. The depth, breadth and quality of this exhibition was exceptional.

These photographs were considered by Adams to be some of his “best” prints, they were meticulously produced by the artist himself and given to The Friends of Photography. Adams was one of the founders of this organization, that began in 1967, with the aim of promoting creative photography and supporting its practitioners.
