Ansel Adams Gallery reviews
We were lucky enough to get Michael Wise as our guide for our 4-hour private photo tour of Yosemite Valley. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Michael was very good at communicating and moving our tour.... more »
If you like Ansel Adams this shop is a must stop. Original photos of his for sale, and pictures of him while living there more »
As a photographer I did not see what I hoped to find. I wanted to see a tribute to Ansel Adams with a little history and samples of his work. Instead I was given walls of post cards, books, calendars and candles for sale. I understand this is a gallery designed to make money, not a museum. I also understand original Ansel Addams prints can cost in the 10's of thousands of dollars. At least display the Ansel Adams reproductions in a prominent area together, not a hodge-podge of old and new artist. See photos from other contributors to judge for yourself.
For those familiar with the beautiful black and white images of Yosemite National Park by early 20th century Ansel Adams, one of interesting places to visit in the valley is his studio. Opening hours 9am to 5pm daily. Today, the Ansel Adams studio is an art gallery where visitors can find photo reprints of Ansel Adams as well as numerous other art related gifts. It is a nice shop to see even if you don't intend to buy anything. Note - within the gallery you'll find a wall with history and images of Ansel Adams as well as information related to the establishment and running of his studio here in Yosemite Valley during the early days.
