Recently at a Cleveland Friends of Photography meeting I asked Tom Hinson, Curator of Photography at The Cleveland Museum of Art and co-curator of this exhibit, how this exhibit would differ from the Ansel Adams exhibit just ending in Detroit. He said that the pictures shown in Detroit were photographs the Lane family had chosen for their personal collection. The photos on exhibit in Cleveland would be the ones Ansel Adams chose to give to the San Francisco FOP, as a representation of his life's work.

I am looking forward to seeing how they differ, but most of all seeing more of Ansel Adams' work in person. No book in my library can compare.
