Ansel Adams in Our Time

Refocus at Museum of Fine Art’s Ansel Adams in Our Time, featuring a collection of works by the late American landscape photographer. Inspired by government survey and expedition photographers of the late 19th century, Adams set out into the uninhabited American West to capture snaps of Yosemite Valley and Yellowstone. The pictures grappled with themes like wilderness spaces, indigenous peoples and environmental threats, such as in Pine Forest In the Snow (seen above) taken at Yosemite National Park in 1932. The exhibit presents his renowned work alongside that of his predecessors, as well as contemporary artists like Mark Klett, Trevor Paglen and Catherine Opie, whose works touch on land rights and natural resource issues. Venture into the wilderness at the MFA from Dec. 13 to Feb. 24. / Natalie Gale
