Ansel Adams: Before & After
Booth Western Art Museum
Featuring work by: Ansel Adams, Bob Kolbrener, Al Weber

Opening Reception Nov 14, 7PM

Over 100 print exhibition, including 30 by Ansel Adams, his predecessors, peers and 13 contemporary photographers. Keynote address by Dr. Michael Adams (Ansel's son) at 7pm will be a ticketed event due to limited seating.

Building on the success of a major Ansel Adams retrospective exhibition held at Booth Western Art Museum in 2009-10, the Booth is mounting an exhibition exploring Adams' influence and highlighting the work of contemporary or living photographers. The living artists selected include those whose work is related to Adams' considerable legacy as well as those who are pushing the boundaries of photography in ways Adams might were he with us today. The exhibition will also include images by those who preceded Adams, influencing his early work, along with photographs made by his peers, providing context for Adams' career and his lasting legacy.

Containing over 100 original prints, including up to 30 images by Adams, the exhibition will shine a spotlight on 15 contemporary photographers who have not achieved Adams' name recognition but are deserving of attention. The opening event for the exhibition will include a lecture by Ansel's son Michael, on November 14. Additional programming will include a day-long symposium featuring contemporary photographers, critics and historians in January 2016, and appearances by photographers throughout the run.

Ansel and After: Before & After is co-curated by Booth Director Seth Hopkins and Tony Casadonte and Bob Yellowlees with Lumiere Gallery in Atlanta.
