Black & White Photo Inspired By Ansel Adams

Include any black and white photo in a set. All styles acceptable.

"[Ansel Easton Adams (1902 – 1984) was an American photographer and environmentalist, best known for his black-and-white photographs of the American West. For his images, he developed the zone system, a way to determine proper exposure and adjust the contrast of the final print. The resulting clarity and depth characterized his photographs. Although his large-format view cameras were difficult to use because of their size, weight, setup time, and film cost, their high resolution ensured sharpness in his images.

Ansel Adams received a number of awards during his lifetime and posthumously, and there have been a few awards named for him. Some of the highlights include:
Doctor of Arts, Harvard University
Doctor of Arts, Yale University
Conservation Service Award, Department of Interior - 1968
Presidential Medal of Freedom - 1980
Mount Ansel Adams - 1985
Ansel Adams Wilderness - 1985
Ansel Adams Award, Sierra Club
Ansel Adams Award for Conservation, the Wilderness Society
On December 5, 2007, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and First Lady Maria Shriver inducted Adams into the California Hall of Fame, located at The California Museum for History, Women and the Arts.]"
