Yosemite 1938

June 10, 2016 - August 28, 2016

In September 1938 photographer Ansel Adams made one of his many trips to Yosemite, but this excursion included his close friends Georgia O’Keeffe, David McAlpin, and Mr. and Mrs. Godfrey Rockefeller. Adams documented the trip with photographs of the landscape and of the group camping. He made five albums of photographs, by hand, as gifts to his companions. There are a total of 48 photographs in the Ansel Adams Yosemite album, and many of the pages have notations written by Adams.
