TAMPA, FL.- More than 50 photographs by Ansel Adams are on exhibit at the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts (FMOPA) in downtown Tampa on the corner of Ashley Drive and Jackson Street. They are on view from April 28 through July 6, 2011.

“Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter.” Ansel Adams

More than any one photographer, Ansel Adams (1902-1984) created images that capture the American spirit: the wide, unconquered spaces of the West, the endless skies that recall the limitless possibilities of the American dream and the rugged terrain that evokes this nation’s can-do energy.

Fittingly, the exhibition is up through Memorial Day and the Fourth of July. But you don’t need to wait until then to rediscover what truly exemplifies America.

In this exhibition, 54 works are presented. The images were personally printed by Adams for his daughter. It’s the portfolio Adams put together in the 1970’s and is what he felt were the best images from his career. The 15 sections include black and white photographs from 1921 through 1968.

Adams anticipated the environmental movement. His works today are hailed by the Sierra Club as well as by art critics as being the iconic images of this American land.

The Florida Museum of Photographic Arts is committed to presenting the photographer’s vision as vital and central to today’s life and culture. A non-profit museum that collects and exhibits photographic works as well as presenting classes and lectures, FMOPA also holds free programs to bring photography and visual literacy to at-risk children.
