    Here it is. Examples The Making of 40 Photographs, p. 80:

    "It is one of the most satisfying prints I have ever made, and I have not been able to duplicate it with contemporary enlarging papers. The paper I used might have been Agfa Convira or Kodak Azo. Both were coated with silver-chloride emulsions, which tone faster and give more color than the predominant bromide or chloro-bromide emulsions of today."

    We currently have several 8x10 contact prints from Adams on display at my work (The Center Of Creative Photography) here in Tucson. The new exhibit just was put up, so go take a look if your in the Tucson area.

    In the late 70s I attended an Adams exhibit at the Krannert Center, University of Illinois, Urbana. Like an idiot, I went near the end of the run, which meant being shoulder-to-shoulder with other late-comers. On my right, as we moved around the exhibit, were an early 30-something guy and his father. They were obviously dilletantes, and made all sorts of inane comments. I was pretty frustrated, but held my tongue. Until, that is, we got to a 30x40-ish print from an negative made in the early 40s. These two clowns pushed their noses up close to the print and the young-un opined "Yeah, that's 35mm!".

    I couldn't stand it any more, so I stated directly, "No, that's at least 4x5, probebly more like 5x7 or 8x10."

    "Oh, do you think so?" the young gun asked, as if "Who the f*@k are you?".

    "No," I replied, "I KNOW so. In the first place, at that time Ansel didn't do much 35mm work. Second, there was no 35mm film made at that time that could produce this."

    A sheepish "Oh." was the reply.

    I felt real, real good.

    Many years later, attending an Adams exhibt at the Ansel Adams gallery in SF, I got the same sense of awe and joy... without the idiots by my side.

    Earl,

    I am sorry I missed that show, I grew up in Decatur,practically next door to Krannert.

    you make a good point, there are a lot of "experts" out there.....

    I think the John Wesley Powell photographs are housed in that area?

    Do they have the greatest portrait ever made on display? That would be Adams' portrait of Weston under the eucalyptus tree. The contact print of that I saw was exquisite beyond words.

    I believe you are correct. I had completely forgotten about that, and can't recall their exact location. Perhaps at Illinois Wesleyan University? I can check if you like.
