Renowned art photographer and environmental leader Ansel Adams (1902-1984) was praised for his sublime interpretations of the dramatic beauty found in the western landscape. Rendered with a naturalist’s precision and a pictorialist’s virtuosity, “Sand Dunes, Sunrise”, 1948, reveals the sharpness of detail and rich tonal range—from deepest black to purest white—that are hallmarks of his work.
