    Has anyone seen the Ansel Adams exhibit at the Bellagio in Las Vegas?

    I get to go there on business next week. I hope to catch a peek.

    I'm going.

    You guys mind if I tag alongwith you? My SO and I get to the DIA at least a couple times a month for movies, I'm sometimes a member and I think she always is.

    In either case, I'm going.

    On rare days, where I live feels far, far away from anywhere else :sad:

    The rest of the time, I'm in my happy place :smile:

    I saw a preview of the show yesterday and was impressed. Much older and less celebrated work. A very nicely done exhibit. I couldn't help but think how far landscape work has come over the years. Enjoy.

    Bill,

    Reads like a very interesting topic. Could you and others with that knowledge talk a bit about the changes from your perspective?

    I listened with great interest to Alan Ross talk last summer at the View Camera conference about continuing the AA prints and how Ansel never made a straight print. Of course no one makes a completely straight print. It is modified by exposure time, filter, dodge & burn, paper selection, etc.. He went on to show us the variety of techniques used by AA and then more recent digital (may lightning not strike) manipulation.


    Thanks,

    John Powers

    I just got back from AA exhibit at the DIA. I waited until the last day. Glad I went though. There wre a lot of photos that I had never seen before. Great show.

    and The Cleveland Institute of Art through August 19th. The ghost of poor Ansel must be worn out running back and forth.
