Ansel Adams

Gelatin Silver Photograph "El Capitan Merced River" - 1952

Unsigned Gelatin Silver Photograph "El Capitan Merced River" from the Yosemite Special Edition series. Image Date: 1952. This beautiful black and white photograph is hand made from Ansel Adams' original negative, and was originally acquired from the family-owned Ansel Adams Gallery. This is as close to an Ansel Adams original photograph as most people can purchase, and it is spectacular. Framed in black lacquer.

Ansel Adams launched the Yosemite Special Edition series in 1958. Today, Alan Ross makes each Special Edition Photograph by hand from Adams' original negative on gelatin silver fiber paper. Ross, a master printer and fine art photographer in his own right, began working side-by-side with Adams as his photographic assistant in 1974; he's been the exclusive printer of this series since 1975. Each of the prints in this limited series bears an identifying stamp of Ansel Adams' signature in the mat.
