Happy 112th birthday to Ansel Adams (1902–1984)! The California-born photographer embraced the abstract in order to enhance the viewer’s experience of the literal world. In his 1949 publication “My Camera in Yosemite Valley,” Adams declared, “Instead of looking at an object until it becomes ‘something else’ (which so many contemporary artists feel it necessary to do in order to escape reality) I find one must look at it until it becomes its sublimated self.”
