I am honored to have been invited to be a part of the Adobe Distinguished Lecture Series. I will be presenting a brand new lecture Ansel Adams: An Inspiration on Thursday, June 24 at 4:00 pm at Adobes Park Auditorium at their headquarters in San Jose. The lecture is free and open to the public. This lecture will focus primarily on Ansels photography, and explore the nuances of his renowned photographic vision. During this audio-visual presentation Ansels images will be transformed on the screen from the negative to the final print - progressing through various phases in the evolution of a finely crafted expressive print. In addition, I will be showing a number of my own images and discussing the inspiration and influence that Ansel has had on my photography, as well as his effect on other photographers and photography in general. Directions to the facility can be found here. A book signing will follow the lecture, for those that are interested. I look forward to seeing some APUG members at this event.
