My art springs from a love for the natural world, the bones of the land, the skin and fur of plants and trees. But it is the challenge of the printmaking process, its layers of reversal and carving, its always surprising results, that keep me at it year after year, image after image. I am just beginning to understand the power of visual communication, its topography and patterns that flow in the living river of time, outside the confines of word-structured thought.
While photography is my profession, it is both a source of inspiration and a form of meditation for me. I am constantly inspired by the vision and creativity of others and I am completely content when immersed in my own efforts. At this point in my career, I find that I have a very simple approach to making images. I look for, and I believe others respond to, a feeling of motion that resides just below the surface of our first impressions.
From 1948 to 1976 Ansel Adams produced seven limited-edition portfolios. Each portfolio was comprised of ten to fifteen signed silver gelatin photographs. In all there are ninety superb images including many of Adams’ most famous monumental landscape photographs and some remarkable, less familiar portraits and architectural studies
Vintage photographs by Ansel Adams date back as far as the 1920s, and are generally defined as photographs printed within five years of when the negative was made.
Our autumn exhibition, “A Continuing Legacy in Yosemite Romanticism – New Oil Paintings by James McGrew” embraces not only our own roots as one of the longest running businesses in any National Park, but we also pay homage to the role that art has held in the establishment and protection of our most revered public lands.
