The Huntington Library is celebrating one of its newest additions – a complete collection of work from famed photographer Ansel Adams.
Adams was best known for his images of Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada, but his decades of work captured much more than that. From 1948 to 1976, Adams created seven limited edition portfolios all containing a dozen or more photos.
Barbara Barrett-Byrne said her late husband George collected all seven of those portfolios. He was a student of the legendary photographer and a member of the Sierra Club.
