Art and Water - New reflections on the work of Ansel Adams
A one-day conference at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich
Ansel Adams is the most popular and arguably the most influential photographer in American history, yet in some ways he remains poorly understood. From 9 November 2012 – 28 April 2013, the National Maritime Museum will be hosting a major exhibition of his works, featuring – for the first time – his pictures of water in all its forms. Using techniques such as sharp focus, seriality, and sequence, Adams returned to water again and again, making some of the most striking photographs of his career and establishing water as a key character in his art.
Capitalising on this rare opportunity to consider in detail works by Adams the NMM will be hosting a one-day conference, structured around a series of individual papers and discussions. This event is designed to explore the themes raised in the exhibition in order to situate Adams’s water images in a broader cultural context.
