Ansel Easton Adams (1902-1984) was an American Landscape photographer and environmentalist known for his black and white images of the American West. He was a founding group member of Group f/64 an association of photographers advocating “pure” photography favoring sharp focus and the use of full tonal range of a photograph. Ansel Adams developed a photography system of image making called the Zone System, a method of achieving a final photographic print through a technical understanding of tonal range development in the negative and the printed version of a photograph. This approach resulted in clarity of depth and tone in his photographs.
