Classic Art

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of pmg123. All opinions are 100% mine.

Ansel Adams, a master of photography, created this image in 1942.

Most of the tweaking of his photos was done in the darkroom, unlike today's digital world where we do the tweaking on our computers.

We may think we know more today, but view any of his work and we are certainly put right back in our places.

He really knew.

I have always admired his work and any time I can get my hands on a book with his work in it, I devour each page.

I have never had the chance to see his actual photographs in a museum or gallery, but I hope to someday.

The Phoenix Art Museum is the place to be right now if you are lucky enough to be in that area.

They currently have a program set up of world-renowned collections that include the works of 2000 photographers and over 80,000 images.

Just to throw around a few names, Ansel Adams, Edward Weston, and Loiuse Dahl-Wolfe.

These are just a few of the photography masters who's images are included in the museum's exhibition.

For now, I will just have to enjoy the small collection of photographs that they have posted online.

I envy the viewers who get to enjoy these artist's works in person - what a treat for the eyes!
