Ansel Adams (1902-1984) was a master of photographic landscapes. During his career he won three Guggenheim grants to photograph national parks. In 1932, Adams and Edward Weston founded a group of San Francisco photographers known as Group f/64. Adams also served on the board of the Sierra Club from 1934 to 1971.

Adams' technical mastery was the stuff of legend. More than any creative photographer, before or since, he reveled in the theory and practice of the medium. Weston and Strand frequently consulted him for technical advice. Adams developed the famous and highly complex "zone system" of controlling and relating exposure and development, enabling photographers to creatively visualize an image and produce a photograph that matched and expressed that visualization.
