Would photography be as popular without the influence of Ansel Adams? Linda Dougherty, chief curator and curator of contemporary art at the NCMA, discusses Adams’s importance as well as the ticketed exhibition Ansel Adams: Masterworks. The exhibition features photos that Adams personally chose as a reflection of his best work.
