Ansel Adams
Ansel Adams never took a picture with a human being in it in his life.
Adams quotes
The engraving [on New York drivers' licenses] is done in grayscale, hence the Ansel Adams feel.
Adams
I eagerly await new concepts and processes. I believe that the electronic image will be the next major advance. Such systems will have their own inherent and inescapable structural characteristics, and the artist and functional practitioner will again strive to comprehend and control them.




Adams Ansel quotes
At one with the power of the American landscape, and renowned for the patient skill and timeless beauty of his work, photographer Ansel Adams has been visionary in his efforts to preserve this country's wild and scenic areas, both in film and on Earth. Drawn to the beauty of nature's monuments, he is regarded by environmentalists as a monument himself, and by photographers as a national institution. It is through his foresight and fortitude that so much of America has been saved for future Americans.
Adams Ansel
A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense, and is, thereby, a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety.
Ansel Adams quotes
I have often thought that if photography were difficult in the true sense of the term meaning that the creation of a simple photograph would entail as much time and effort as the production of a good watercolor or etching there would be a vast improvement in total output. The sheer ease with which we can produce a superficial image often leads to creative disaster.
Ansel Adams
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
Adams Ansel quotes
For me the future of the image is going to be in electronic form. ... You will see perfectly beautiful images on an electronic screen. And I'd say that would be very handsome. They would be almost as close as the best reproductions.
Adams
It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.
Adams Ansel
The herculean task of a photographer is to capture a momentary frame as beautiful in reality, as it would be in a dream.
Ansel Adams
No matter how sophisticated you may be, a large granite mountain cannot be denied it speaks in silence to the very core of your being.




Ansel Adams quotes
There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.
