VSAR 440- Ansel Adams Film

During our class, we watched Ansel Adams, which is basically other artists and people talking about who Ansel Adams was a famous photographer in the the late 1920’s and 1930’s as well as a environmentalist. He was born in San Francisco, California. The film goes on to talk about Ansel Adams love for nature wanting to show how photography can be “meaningful.” Ansel was so inspired to be a great photographer that when he went to New York he ended up working with photographer Alfred Stieglitz, who was admired for his work. Ansel was very determined, he worked hard, never took a break or a vacation unless he was hung over. After 15 years he still made meaningful work. He made giant murals for  government establishments. His work in the 1940’s produced this intensity because of what was happening in the world, such as the great depression and World War II. Adams was “passionately involved” in environmental issues, most of his work reflected nature itself. He was also involved in the mass environmental movement.
