This may be of interest to a few people here -

Ansel Adams - Photography from the Mountains to the Sea
4 July - 8 December 2013

Water was one of the favourite subjects of the great American photographer Ansel Adams (1902-84), best known for his detailed black-and-white landscapes that capture the epic spaces of the US continent. The museum brings the spectacular work of this brilliant pioneering modernist to Australian audiences, combining famous images with lesser-known works that focus on the artist's exploration of water in all its forms. Full of energy and dynamism, Adams' photographs of mountains, clouds and waterfalls, seascapes, bays and tide pools, provide a fresh perspective on a celebrated photographer.

I went to the "official" opening to this exhibition last night. It was fantastic. Aside from the free drinks and canapes, I've never seen any Ansel Adams prints in the flesh, only in books and online. It was quite stirring to finally see his work and to see some of those prints that he'd made in the early part of his career still looking fresh and strong. I'm going to write up a review for my blog so will link you up to that. But if you're in Sydney, you really should go to see it, it's well worth a visit.
