BBC – Ansel Adams: Exploring the inner lens of the imagination

p061c3c6

Ansel Adams’ images celebrate the wonder of the American West. In Civilisations: Picturing Paradise Simon Schama praises him for sharing the “luminous majesty” of the land with the world. While landscape photography and conservation were his main focus, during World War Two Adams turned his lens towards the treatment of a specific ethnic group.

Nobuhiro Nakanishi’s mesmerizing body of work entitled Layered Drawings is truly breathtaking. He photographs a scene or object repeatedly over time, then laser prints each shot and mounts them onto acrylic. Change is captured in each frame, and once layered, they become sculpture installations. The overall effect shows movement and the subtle passage of time.
