Even if you’re not a photography aficionado, you’ve seen the work of Ansel Adams. His warm, black & white photos of natural wonders like those in Yosemite National Park have been reproduced in popular posters and coffee table books. Some of his lesser known works that revolve around water will be the focus of “At the Water’s Edge”, an upcoming exhibit at the Peabody Essex Museum. When we think of Adams’ work, we often think of rocky and desert landscapes. But he also had an interest in the many forms of water, including rain, fog, mist, ice and snow – even the waterfalls and rapids in places like the High Sierra.
“Ansel Adams: At the Water’s Edge” will be on view June 9 thru October 8 at the Peabody Essex Museum in their special exhibition galleries. So if you’re looking for something to do and a unique experience, here’s a chance at a deeper look into the work of an American original.
