ANSEL ADAMS - AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL

Previous

Ansel Adams was an American photographer best known for his iconic images of the American West, including Yosemite National Park.

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs.
When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” —Ansel Adams

Adams’ images were used as evidence in Congressional hearings that were being held in Washington DC, 

debating whether to fund more than the one National Park, Yellowstone. It was a successful campaign and Adam’s images were almost single handedly responsible for the extension of our national park system. The beauty of his images moved government officials to pass legislation to protect it for future generations of 
Americans to enjoy.
