Ansel Adams
Winter Sunrise, Sierra Nevada from Lone Pine

1944

About the Item

"Winter Sunrise, Sierra Nevada from Lone Pine" is a photography by famed and landmark photographer Ansel Adams. The photograph is signed on verso with artist's stamp, "Photograph by Ansel Adams Winter Sunrise, The Sierra Nevada, from Lone Pine, California, 1944". The framed piece measures 31 1/2 x 35 x 1 3/8 in. Ansel Adams was an American photographer and environmentalist, best known for his black-and-white photographs of the American West, especially in Yosemite National Park. Along with Fred Archer, Adams developed the Zone System as a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast of the final print. The resulting clarity and depth characterized his photographs and the work of those to whom he taught the system. Adams primarily used large-format cameras despite their size, weight, setup time, and film cost, because their high resolution helped ensure sharpness in his images.
