Some of our photography posts included famous quotes from Ansel Adams. Therefore, we thought that it’s now the time for you guys to take a look at his fabulous work.

For those of you who never heard of him, Ansel was born at the turn of the last century, in 1902. Although his name sounds more like Irish, he is a San Franciscan (neat name for a person living in San Franscisco, right?).

He is often recalled as the pioneer of nature photography (at least in the US) and most of his impressive work was done in the 1940s. Church, Taos Puebla (1942) or McDonald Lake, Glacier National Park (142) are amongst his most well knowing work. For his groundbreaking work he has received two Doctorate of Arts from (just) Harvard and Yale.

Today, his photos are sold for prices that range $50.000 – $80.000. Nevertheless, enjoy, be inspired and if you will like this article, then please share it with your friends or community! Many thanks! Cheers!
