A retrospective of the twentieth-century landscape photographer Ansel Adams. The exhibition, which focuses on the photographer's life-long fascination with water, features images of seascapes, rapids, waterfalls, geysers, clouds, ice, snow, ponds and rivers, many famous, some that have never before been on display in the UK. Adams (1902-1984) was a photographic pioneer who brought the American wilderness into the homes of millions with his images of rugged and romantic landscapes. The show brings together some of the most famous photographs of the twentieth century, such as 'Clearing Winter Storm, Yosemite' and 'Stream, Sea, Clouds, Rodeo Lagoon, Marin County, California', along with lesser-known examples. It also provides the opportunity to see Adams's largest known works, a series of three murals produced for the American Trust bank.
