ANSEL ADAMS: MASTERWORKS
From the Collection of The Turtle Bay Exploration Park, Redding, CA

This collection of 48 photographs by Ansel Adams (1902-84) represents two-thirds of a selection he made late in life to serve as a succinct representation of his lifes work. Adams felt these photographs were his best. Called The Museum Set, these images reveal the importance Adams placed on the drama and splendor of natural environments that might not, to the ordinary passing hiker, have revealed their secrets. The collection was donated to the The Turtle Bay Exploration Park by D. Fidel Real y Vasquez.

This exhibition was organized by the Turtle Bay Exploration Park, Redding, California.
Exhibition tour management by Landau Traveling Exhibitions, Los Angeles, California.
