SIGHT AND FEELING: PHOTOGRAPHS BY ANSEL ADAMS

Exhibition sponsored by Stacy and Jim Geitgey.

Aug 29 - Nov 24


On loan from Kalamazoo Institute of Arts, this exhibition showcases the works of one of America’s greatest landscape photographers and environmentalists known for his black and white images of the American West.


"In my mind's eye, I visualize how a particular . . . sight and feeling will appear on a print. If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good photograph. It is an intuitive sense, an ability that comes from a lot of practice." Ansel Adams


Ansel Adams' skill at creating photographs with a remarkable range and subtly of tones is legendary. Yet for all his technical mastery, Adams recognized that what made a compelling photograph was far more elusive. This exhibition of Adams' photographs from the KIA collection and local collectors suggests how his intuitive and emotional response to the landscape resulted in powerful and enduring photographs.
