Ansel Adams Yosemite

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.

What People Are Saying

We went here because one of our kids wasn't feeling too well so we looked for options that were softer than trekking (summers) , and we absolutely loved it . The art work is fascinating and beautiful and varied ...a must visit - esp if its a rainy day :)
