Two of the Greatest Photographers in US History

The Two Great Photographers in US History

When we think of the two greatest photographers of the US history, we think of Ansel Adams and Edward Weston. Edward Henry Weston (1886 - 1958) was originally from Chicago, then moved to California. He was best known for his sensual nudes and spectacular landscapes.

In 1937 Weston received a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship producing numerous award winning images. Some of Weston’s best images were taken around the Carmel California region. Weston’s legacy continued with both of his sons Brett Weston and Cole Weston who have continued in his footsteps.

Ansel Easton Adams (1902-1984) is known as the grandfather of fine art photography. Originally trained as a pianist Adams transferred his musical artistry into visual form. Adams primarily used a large format camera and is best known for his crisp sharp landscapes.

Adams was well known for the work he did on the preservation and recording of the landscapes of Yosemite National Park. Together with Edward Weston Adams also founded Group f/64 which was the seed for the Museum Of Modern Arts.

To which you have to recollect to include the first $100 that you acquired.
