New Views of the West
Ansel Adams, The Tetons and Snake River, Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming (detail), 1942


The Museum of Fine Arts takes a contemporary look at the work of a classic American photographer—perhaps the classic American photographer—with its new exhibit Ansel Adams in Our Time. Both iconic and rare images depicting natural and man-made landmarks from the American West are included along with pictures from more than 20 living photographers who have either been inspired or challenged by his legacy, often revisiting some of the same locales that Adams made famous while echoing and expanding upon his concerns about the environment, use of land and the affects our policies have on the people who live there. Scenics from 19th century photography pioneers that greatly influenced Adams like Eadweard Muybridge, Carleton E. Watkins and Timothy O’Sullivan are also represented, connecting a visual continuum that resonates into the present.
