The Center for Photographic Art is proud to announce the opening of
PEOPLE, OF AND BY ANSEL ADAMS curated by Jeanne Falk Adams and Sarah Adams. Rarely seen portraits by Ansel Adams from the personal collection of Michael and Jeanne Falk Adams highlight this truly historic show held in Ansel Adams’ hometown of Carmel, California.

Portraits of Ansel’s contemporaries – people who were significant in Ansel’s life - such as Georgia O'Keeffe & Orville Cox, Robinson Jeffers, Mary Austin, Albert Bender, Cedric Wright, Beaumont Newhall, Alfred Stieglitz, and Edward Weston combine with loving images of his family.

Although Ansel is universally known for his landscapes, Jon Holmes wrote this of his portraits: "His portraits really stand apart. ... These are tactile images in which the viewer can reach into the frame and touch the subject."

Also included in the exhibit are portraits of Ansel Adams taken by his friends, family, and colleagues.

This exhibit is sponsored by Betty and Jim Kasson.
