Ansel Adams Masterworks at NCMAThe Scoop: In a career that spanned five decades, Ansel Adams (1902–84) became one of America’s most renowned photographers. This exhibition focuses on his “Museum Set,” a collection of 48 photographs carefully selected and printed by Adams. Adams designated these works late in his life as a succinct representation of the best work of his career. Included are many of his iconic images of majestic American landscapes, such as El Capitan and Half Dome in Yosemite National Park; the Golden Gate in San Francisco; Monument Valley in Arizona; and the Snake River in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. The set shows Adams’s broad range of interests and features not only his popular photographs, but also lesser-known portraits of people and close-ups of nature.

The 2017 Krispy Kreme Challenge
