05/23/2019 – Ansel Adams – Environmentalist and Photographer

Northshore Photography Lecture Series - ENCORE LECTURE by Lance Hidy

Photographer Ansel Adams (1902–1984), began his long career at age 12 in Yosemite National Park with a Kodak cardboard box Brownie Camera. A nervous, sickly misfit who dropped out of school in the eighth grade, Adams found his life’s calling, and his salvation, in the wilderness of the Sierra Nevada. He devoted the rest of his days to sharing the transformative power of wilderness through his art, and through his leadership in the Sierra Club.

Lance Hidy was chosen by Adams to collaborate on the last book of his career, Yosemite and the Range of Light (1979). Hidy continued to be the main designer of Adams books after his death in 1984. Informed by his first-hand experience with Adams and his circle, Hidy brings a personal perspective to the Ansel Adams story.
