We attended the Ansel Adams exhibit at the MFA in Boston…on the second to last day. Whew! So crowded. People however were patient and polite and we felt both rewarded and exhausted at the end. Among my friends there was some controversy about the juxtaposition of contemporary photographs alongside those by Adams. I really appreciated the contrast. I’ve seen many of Adams’s images over the years…all fabulous…carefully planned and scrupulously printed. But the current photos really helped to throw new light on the earlier ones. The changes in our landscape, OUR impact on our environment, was made glaring by the contrast.
