Ansel Adams Manly Beacon
Manly Beacon, Death Valley National
Monument, California, about 1948
In 1953 Arizona Highways published a feature on Death Valley illustrated with photographs by Adams (the magazine is on view here). Edward Weston took photographs there in the late 1930s and encouraged Adams to do the same. The latter spoke of the rewards of working in that challenging environment in a letter to another friend, the photographer Minor White (who began his own photography career here in Portland): “Death Valley is SOMETHING!!!...it’s just a tremendous nest of photographic opportunity. Interesting to recognize many of Edward’s pets, and also interesting to figure how I would do them my way.”
