With my upcoming trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Yosemite National Park, California I have been thinking a lot about the work of Ansel Adams. His landscapes are some of the most well known works of art today, and will undoubtedly be so for a long time to come. Although, I find a lot more interest in his portraiture for which he is not as well known for. I took the time and scanned a few of my favorite portraits from the book 400 Photographs. Black and white is starting to really appeal to me.
