Ansel Adams Next to His Camera
(Original Caption) Portrait of Ansel Adams, who first started his professional career as a pianist and later turned to the camera for self-expression. Since publication of his first book, "The High Sierras," a pictoral study, in 1927, he has been known for his striking, detailed photographic studies of nature, and particularly of the Far West. He divides his time between his studio in San Francisco and Yosemite National Park. Photo filed 3/23/1961.
