Earlier this year I went to see the Ansel Adams exhibition at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich entitled, Photography from the Mountains to the Sea.
Ansel Adams is the most popular – and arguably most influential – photographer in American history. Famous for dramatic and evocative landscapes, he produced iconic and beautiful images of American nature. The forests, mountains and coastlines of the US provided a rich environment for Adams’s pioneering photography, and this exhibition brings together his most powerful and striking pictures of water in all its forms, from awe-inspiring images of epic seascapes, dramatic rapids and geysers, to crashing waterfalls, placid ponds, raging rivers and beautiful ice-locked landscapes.
Anyone who enjoys the great outdoors and has an interest in photography should go to see this exhibition. It runs until the end of April 2013 and has a late night on Thursdays. I felt truly inspired after viewing the exhibition and would thoroughly recommend a visit.
