ANSEL ADAMS
The nature photographer penned his autograph on this menu from the Ahwahnee in Yosemite Valley. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 33¾x21.
Menu signed: "Ansel/Adams", 4p, 5½x8½, front and verso (display is windowed to show luncheon menu on verso). The Ahwahnee, Yosemite Valley, 1953 August 16. Adams' photograph, Young Lake, Yosemite, is on facing page. Photograph of The Ahwahnee is windowed on verso of display. For over ten years, Ansel Adams (1902-1984), who is known for his photographs featuring America's natural beauty, was the publicity photographer for the Curry Company, which operates the Ahwahnee and six other hotels in Yosemite National Park. The Ahwahnee, or "deep grassy valley" in the language of the Ahwahneechee Indian tribe, opened on July 27, 1927. In 1955, two years after this luncheon menu was signed, Adams initiated yearly photographic educational workshops at Yosemite that continued for 26 years (1955-1981). He moved the workshops to his home in Carmel in 1982, and they continue yearly as an Ansel Adams legacy by The Friends of Photography. At Yosemite, where Adams captured nature on film for over 60 years, he lectured on wilderness conservation and appreciation, as well as visualization in the art of photography. Much of Adams' professional photographic life was spent at Yosemite, where the Ansel Adams Gallery, formerly Best's Studio, is located (a different photographic exhibit is featured each month). Adams published approximately 40 books, including My Camera in National Parks (1950) and Yosemite and the Range of Light (1979). He and his wife, Virginia, also had another, more intimate reason for their fondness for Yosemite; they were married there on January 2, 1928. Slightly creased. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 33¾x21.
