Ansel Adams (1902–1984) is arguably the most popular and the most influential photographer in American history. This spectacular exhibition explores Adams’s unique approach to photography by featuring – for the first time – pictures of water in all its forms.

Fluid, ephemeral, and unpredictable, water was the ideal subject for photographic experimentation. Adams returned to water again and again, capturing seascapes, rapids, waterfalls, geysers, clouds, ice and snow, placid ponds and raging rivers, producing some of the most striking images of his career. Combining some of the most famous works of the 20th century with stunning, lesser-known or seldom seen examples, the exhibition will provide a new context for enjoying the work of this important artist and for understanding his legacy.
