October 9, 2015 / by JON PERRY – Tyler Morning Telegraph

The iconic work of one of the giants in the field of landscape photography is the focus of the Tyler Museum of Art’s exhibition, Ansel Adams: Early Works opening Sunday.

Adams (1902-1984) – an accomplished musician, naturalist, explorer, critic and teacher in addition to his photographic prowess – represented the end of a movement in American art focused on capturing the beauty in the pristine Western landscape. Yet most audiences only are familiar with the heroic, high-contrast prints on high-gloss paper stock Adams manufactured to order in the 1970s and ’80s.
