In Focus: Ansel Adams
Photograph: Ansel Adams, CourtesyThe J. Paul Getty Museum, gift of Carol Vernon and Robert Turbin in memory of Marjorie and Leonard Vernon The Tetons and the Snake River, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Before his work could be found in every coffee table book in America, Ansel Adams spent six decades exposing the Earth's natural artistry from behind a large format camera. Between the field and the darkroom, the iconic conservationist and lensman became internationally renowned for his black and white landscapes; and towards the end of his life, he sought to archive his legacy for generations to come. This spring, the Getty presents the "Ansel Adams Museum Set"a selection of Adams's greatest works handpicked by the artist himself. Earlier photographs from the Museum's permanent collection will also be on display, making this extensive exhibition a must-go.
