On June 9th, the Peabody Essex Museum unveils Ansel Adams: At the Water’s Edge, an exhibition of more than 100 of the artist’s images of water in all its forms: seascapes, beaches, bays, tide pools, lakes, clouds and waterfalls. The exhibition combines famous images with lesser known works to provide a fresh perspective on Adams’s celebrated career. It will be on display through October 8, 2012, and will then travel to the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, UK.

  1. Even after all the incredible, groundbreaking photographers who have come after him, I never get tired of Ansel Adams’s work.

  2. All of Ansel Adams’s images are compelling. Hope we get to see much more of the master’s so called “lesser known works”.
