Ansel Adams (U.S., 1902-1984): Road, Nevada Desert

Silver-gelatine print, 7.5 x 9.5 inches, circa 1960

Speaking volumes about the wide open spaces of the American West... and about the road ahead... this image shows a surprising side to Ansel Adams' works. But Adams' career was filled with fresh visual surprises--insights that combined to make him the most famous photographer of the twentieth century.

This seldom-seen image is part of Adams' Hasselblad Series, and he annotated and signed it on the back for the present owner in 1979.
