Dr. Coleman, who runs the Wittliff Collection at San Marcos came up to give a talk in front of a nice exhibit of early Ansel Adams prints. He traced the beginnings of Ansel's advocacy of environmental projects, starting with the Sierra Club and into some of his political advocacy. Nice talk and nice prints to look at. The show is Ansel's first portfolio "Parmelian Prints of the High Sierras." 18 little prints showing Ansel moving from ortho film to panchromatic and including Monolith. There is an early Moonrise and another 25 vintage prints. Worth seeing. Exhibition runs through early next year.
I'll be lecturing November 15th, Sunday at 2:00 PM about these same prints.
