I always like speaking about Ansel and his influence on my photography, and indeed my life. I am honored to have the opportunity to present my lecture Ansel Adams: A Personal Recollection for the Center for Creative Photography on Monday, May 9, 2011 at 5:30 pm.
The lecture is being offered in association with the exhibition of nearly forty prints Ansel Adams: Arizona and the West which is on display at the Center through May 15th. It is a rare opportunity to see this group of photographs, representing the entire course of Adamsís prolific career.
During my lecture, which will include new material that I have not previously presented, I will discuss the nuances of Anselís renowned photographic techniques, provide insights into Anselís creative process, and present some of his well-known, as well as lesser known, images. A number of 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 recount personal anecdotes of working side by side with Ansel. I will also be sharing a few images from my own photographic career of nearly forty years. I promise it will be a lively and entertaining presentation.
Following the lecture I will be signing copies of my books, Recollections and Places of Power.
I hope some APUG members will be able to attend this event. Please pass this information on to others that might be interested in attending this event. If you would like more information, check out the Center for Creative Photographyís web site.
