Beginning in 1958 The Ansel Adams Gallery began selling Special Edition Prints. In the early years, Ansel signed each photograph after they were printed by his assistant. These full signature versions ended in 1972, but we currently have a few available for purchase from this era on our website. These would make a truly extraordinary holiday present for a collector of Ansel Adams photography.

On his first trip to Canyon de Chelly in September 1937, Ansel was drawn to the “beautiful, flowing patterns” of the solidified sand dunes clearly visible in the lower left corner of this photograph. He wrote to his wife, Virginia, “The Canyon de Chelly exceeds anything I have imagined at any time!”

This month, in time for the holidays, we have reached into our archives for the first time to present two images by Don Worth (1924-2009): “Succulent, Mill Valley,” and “Shrubs and Snow, Yosemite Valley.” Traditionally, Mr. Worth’s respective prices ranged between $4,000 and $6,000, but you can now add one to your private collection for 25% off of our original retail price.

He took the photo from west side of the El Capitan bridge over the Merced River in Western Yosemite Valley. Over time, […]

Ansel Adams, the master photographer of the American West, made small, soft-edged prints early in his career and high-contrast, large-scale prints later on. Michael Mattis, who with his wife, Judith Hochberg, owns the 41 early Adams prints (1920s to 1950s) now at the Long Island Museum of American Art, History and Carriages, compares the early prints to chamber music and the later ones to brass bands.
I’ve heard some say this winter season has been a disappointment. Photography-wise. Where are the dramatic snowy valley scenes, the snow “cones” and frazil ice, the water in horsetail falls? It may be a good thing that Yosemite still feels new to me even after three years. I still don’t know what to expect. The […]
Snow in Yosemite Valley has been infrequent the last two winters. I moved to Yosemite in March of 2010, during a snowstorm. The following March (2011), the inhabitants of the park experienced what has affectionately become known as ‘Snowmageddon’; a series of snowstorms that dropped several feet onto the valley floor and well over ten feet in the higher elevations. The park had to close for a few days while crews cleared roads and restored power…
