Ansel Adams ( 1902 – 1984 ) A master of Black and White landscapes Adams , spent much of his time documenting the wilds of the American West, perhaps most famously Yosemite National Park in California and the Tetons and Snake River in Wyoming.
Perhaps the most well-known photographer of all time, Ansel Adams’ work likely adorns the walls of households and businesses more than any other photographer.
His photos helped lead the charge to protect nature and wildlife, a pursuit Adams was as passionate about as photography.
