ANSEL ADAMS
The American photographer penned his signature on this typed message regarding the awful weather
Typed Letter Signed: "Ansel". 5½x3¼. One page. Dated February 20, 1962. The photographer's personal address is printed on the card. In Full: "Awful nice talking with you today; was touched by the birthday song. Sexty at Sixty is my motto! Hideous amounts of rain here now; frustrating! Flu was frustrating. Frus is frustrating! Have oodles of new things and oooodles of old things and never seem to get to printing good prints. It is one of those situations which happens just so often = tired of it, but I am sure there will be a sudden revival and WOW - I shall be off in a cloud of hypo crystals! I did send some relatively new things to the Cordova Museum, but maybe they did not show them. Have no catalogue. Glad it looks good!! More soon -- glad you are all OK. Luffff". Ansel Adams (1902-1984) was born in San Francisco, California. He became one of the most famous photographers in United States history, mostly taking high-resolution landscape photographs. His subject matter was predominantly the American West. With photographers Willard Van Dyke and Edward Weston, Adams formed a group of photographers called Group f/64. All primary members were based out of San Francisco and framed their productions from a Western America perspective. He published numerous photographic books, including Parmelian Prints of the High Sierras (1927), The Land of Little Rain (1950), and Yosemite Valley (1967). One notable publication that did not depict nature scenes is Born Free and Equal (1944), a book that featured images from the Japanese American Internment camp at the Manzanar War Relocation Center. Although he was criticized for this publication due to its perceived anti-patriotic sentiment, the book demonstrates Adams' dedication to social reform. In 1946, Adams earned one of his three Guggenheim fellowships and used it to photograph every National Park in the United States. He was the first photographer to accomplish this feat. His black and white photographs can still be seen in various printed materials today; they remind viewers of the beauty of nature and are typically used to promote environmentalism. Toned. Light wear and smudging. Otherwise, fine condition.
