  • PORTFOLIO ONE

    Dedicated to Alfred Stieglitz, the father of modern photography, Portfolio One was produced by Ansel Adams in 1948 in a small edition of 75. Drawing from images made after Stieglitz's passing in 1946, this selection exemplifies the light and contemplative quietude of Stieglitz's later imagery.
