Ansel Adams Photography Show Comes to Tulsa's Gilcrease Museum

Tulsa photography buffs will be treated to the work of a modern master with the opening of the Ansel Adams show at the Gilcrease Museum

The show, which opens tomorrow, promises to be well worth the trip. It includes 138 photographs, including many of his most well-known photographs from Yosemite National Park in California and other places in the West. 

Adams is known to darkroom types for his mastery of the Zone System, a method of photo printing that produces incredibly beautiful black-and-white images.  

The Adams show runs through January 4, 2009, so there's plenty of time to see these images. For more on the show, go to the museum's website here

This is very exciting. As a photographer, I am still in awe of what Ansel Adams did with real film and chemistry!

Phillip: We agree. The man was a genius in the darkroom. The show provides ample evidence of that.
