Today, the world’s most comprehensive and compelling showcase for the photographer, Ansel Adams, and his work is the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite Valley. National Park history, original and authentic works of art, and one of Yosemite’s finest collections of books, maps, handicrafts and Native American jewelry are in store for visitors.
The Gallery displays an extraordinary collection of Ansel Adams’ original photographs. Dozens of compositions by Adams, from his earliest work to his world-renowned Western vistas, trace the arc of the artist’s mastery over five decades while pointing to his continuing influence on landscape photography today.
Operating in the very same building that was once Best’s Studio (est. 1902), the Ansel Adams Gallery stands on the Register of Historic California Businesses. Adams lived and worked in the same space where today’s visitors can peruse a priceless cache of photography.
