Ansel Adams
American, 1902–1984
Monolith—The Face of Half Dome, Yosemite
National Park, 1927

 

This majestic view of Half Dome is one of Adams’s most important and groundbreaking early photographs. Shot on a hike in the spring of 1927, it represents his first conscious “visualization”—an image fully anticipated before he tripped the shutter, and one that for Adams
captured the emotional impact of the scene. He made this enlarged print years later, but the dramatic sky and the sharp contrast between the brilliant white snow and dark ridges in the granite were recorded in 1927 when Adams took the photograph, using a deep red filter
and a long exposure (made possible by the windless conditions that day).
