The Ansel Adams Gallery - Photographs by Ansel Adams and select landscape photographers

In the summer of 1901, a landscape painter and political cartoonist for the San Francisco Chronicle by the name of Harry Best took an excursion to Yosemite Valley to camp and paint. Little did he know that this trip would have, indirectly, such an impact on so many, or that we, his descendants, would be telling this story now, nearly a century later. That summer he met Anne Rippey, a beautiful young woman working as an assistant in one of the photography studios in the Valley. After a whirlwind courtship, the two married on July 28 at the base of Bridal Veil Fall. After the ceremony, they stopped the incoming stagecoach to have everyone celebrate with them. Rumor has it that several men were courting Ms. Rippey that summer, and Harry s success lay in his persistence and having sent back to San Francisco for an engagement ring . That winter, Harry applied to the U.S. Army, Yosemite administrators at the time, for a permit to operate a studio business. The following summer, in 1902, the Bests opened their studio in a tent in Yosemite Valley. Thereafter, Harry and Anne returned to Yosemite each summer, building the original Studio in the Old Yosemite Village in 1904. Best s Studio was a family affair from the earliest. Not only was it a husband and wife team producing and selling paintings, painted photographs, and photo finishing, but the Studio also represented Arthur and Alice Best, Harry s brother and sister-in-law. Harry was successful both as a businessman and painter:...

August Sander (1876 #8211; 1964) - Die Photographische Sammlung

August Sander (1876 – 1964) - Die Photographische Sammlung

August Sander gilt als bedeutender Wegbereiter einer zu seiner Zeit neuen Richtung innerhalb der Entwicklung seines Mediums, die heute unter der Bezeichnung der dokumentarisch sachlich-konzeptuellen Photographie Fortsetzung findet. Berühmt wurde der 1876 in Herdorf (Siegerland) geborene Photograph durch das um 1924 entworfene Werk Menschen des 20. Jahrhunderts, in dem er mehrere Hundert seiner Portraits von Menschen unterschiedlicher Gesellschaftsschichten und Berufsgruppen entsprechend einem von ihm angelegten Konzept über Jahrzehnte hinweg in verschiedenen Bildmappen zusammenführte. Ausschnitte dieses Werks wurden erstmalig 1927 in einer Ausstellung im Kölnischen Kunstverein gezeigt und 1929 in seiner ersten Buchpublikation unter dem Titel Antlitz der Zeit veröffentlicht. Mit diesem 60 Portraits umfassenden Bildbuch war es Sander gelungen, ein Gesellschaftsportrait seiner Zeit darzustellen, das auf die Reflexion des Individuellen in Beziehung zum Typischen der jeweiligen Gesellschafts- und Berufsgruppe sowie auf die Frage der gegenseitigen Beeinflussung von Mensch und Gemeinschaft abzielte. Die weltweit größte Sammlung zum Werk des 1964 in Köln verstorbenen Photographen befindet sich heute mit unter anderem über 4.500 Originalabzügen und rund 11.000 Originalnegativen in der Photographischen Sammlung der Kulturstiftung der Sparkasse Köln und wird der Öffentlichkeit kontinuierlich in Form von Publikationen und Ausstellungen vorgestellt.
