Ansel Adams 1957.

by Gavin Seim. My friend Barry Howel and I got looking at videos about Ansel last night and Barry found this gem of Ansel at work from 1957. It has a bit of that newsreel feel of the 1950’s it’s a rare opportunity to see into Ansel’s gearbag (more like gear warehouse) and see him at work, even though the quality is a bit faded.

I’ll add part1 and part2 below. Not so much a workshop video as a piece of history that makes me think about slowing down and making art instead of pics.  My favorite quote.

“Photography to Ansel Adams is a profession as well as an art. And his standards are as high as those of and architect or a engineer”.
