Ansel Adams

I just can't imagine the medium without his collection of work. I think he was the ultimate combination of dedication and artistic execution. I look to the man, and his work as an inspiration. Whether people admire him or not, one thing can not be argued- That is he completely achieved his photographic vision. Think about that. It's hard to imagine I could ever come close to such an accomplishment, but knowing someone else has gives me added confidence in my own work.
