Fodor's Review

Ansel Adams conceived the idea of a photographer's archive and donated the majority of his negatives to this museum. In addition to its superb collection of his work, the center has works by other major photographers, including Paul Strand, W. Eugene Smith, Edward Weston, and Louise Dahl-Wolfe. Changing exhibits in the main gallery display selected pieces from the collection. On the first Friday of every month, a themed display of photos from the archives is set up, unframed, in the print study room for up-close viewing and discussion with docents.
