The Sacred and Sublime: Ansel Adams Captured it All

As Cultural Currents noted in an earlier post about the de YoungAnsel Adams in Our Time exhibit opens on April 8.

The show brings more than 100 works from this self-described “California photographer” to the site of his very first museum exhibition in 1932, placing him in dialogue with 23 contemporary artists who are engaging anew with the landscapes and environmental issues that inspired Adams.

Most Bay Area residents will surely recognize his shot of the housing development in the San Bruno Mountains, circa 1966.
