The Ansel Adams you don't know . . .
But, lesser known is his 1940 work on assignment in Los Angeles for Fortune Magazine. Capturing a pre-war city in all her permutations, Adams put forth a narrative of life unspoiled in a city now so often scolded for the same. Adams discovered these ‘lost’ images in 1960, and donated them to the Los Angeles Public Library. Lucky for us, downtown L.A.’s art gallery ’drkrm’ is presenting these works now through March 17th–at 727 S. Spring Street. Or, catch them online soon! Shown above is one sample of his work.
