Ansel Adams
American, 1902–1984
Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico, 1941


Moonrise is one of Adams’s best-known images and one of the most famous photographs ever made. Adams was driving with his young son Michael and friend Cedric Wright toward Santa Fe late in the afternoon, when he saw the small town of Hernandez under the rising moon. Adams stopped and frantically began to set up his camera. He could not find his light meter, but he
recalled the luminance of the moon (250 candles per square foot) and used that to estimate his exposure. He released the shutter only seconds before the sun slipped away and the town fell into shadow.
