Rebecca Senf Discusses “Making a Photographer: The Early Work of Ansel Adams”:

Ansel Adams first arrived in California’s Yosemite Valley as a shy, home-schooled fourteen-year-old boy in 1916. How did this young tourist, with a Box Brownie camera in hand, become an accomplished mountaineer and one of the most recognizable photographers of the twentieth century? In this intimate first look at her new book, “Making A Photographer: The Early Work of Ansel Adams”, the chief curator of the Center for Creative Photography, Rebecca Senf, charts Adams’s progression from novice to mature artist. This debut event for “Making a Photographer” will include a short reading, followed by a behind-the-scenes exploration of how Senf leveraged primary source materials to build a new narrative about the photographer. Her talk illustrates unknown pictures by Adams, rare archival objects, and some of his most iconic photographs. Drawing on more than fifteen years of research, “Making a Photographer: The Early Work of Ansel Adams” will deepen your understanding of one of photography’s central figures, enriching your appreciation of his formative years.
