    AA portfolio size

    According to Nancy Newhall, in 1933 Ansel Adams went to NY to show his portfolio to Alfred Stieglitz. Does somebody know the prints size AA used in this portfolio ?

    This is all I can find

    From "Ansel Adams An Autobiography" Pg 100

    "I gave him my portfolio and he opened it. It contained a number of small photographs, all recent contact prints that I felt were my best"

    I don't know if he was using an 8X10 camera at the time.

    He might have been using the 5x7" Zeiss Juwel then.

    I recently saw an exhibit at The University of Florida from a private collection - there were lots of images I had never seen before, either as prints or as reproductions. There were a number of small prints from the late 20s and early 30s. Some that I believe to have been contact prints were 5x7 - others were 4x5. There were also a few prints at slightly smaller than 5x7 that, according to some of the books, were originally shot with a 4x5. So he must have enlarged some prints only a little bit.

    I might also have trimmed down the 5x7's.
