Black and white photography has been a draw for me ever since I can remember. I grew up in a home which had its fair collection of Ansel Adams prints, although sadly, none are originals. Once I became of age to operate a disposable camera, it became my personal quest to recreate, if not just capture, my own Ansel experience.
I realize I am not unique, nor alone, in my infatuation with his work as evidenced by the numerous prints I see in other’s homes and the newly found instagram community I follow.
It seems as though all photographers are on a daily pilgrimage to embody the artist’s work and keen eye, if not only for just a single snapshot. What has always been a draw to me is his abilities to make nature and simple objects within, envelop the viewer as if to transport you to that very place and time.
