Ansel Adams Works and More, at the Hyde Collection
The Hyde Collection in Glens Falls, N.Y., is currently showing two outstanding photography exhibitions that bring the viewer powerful imagery by important American and international photographers. The show continues through April 20. The first focuses on 40 early works of a renowned American landscape photograper. ‘Ansel Adams: Early Works,’ offers a fresh look at Adams’ key images from the 1920s through the 1950s, clearly illustrating the evolution of his style – from warm-toned, painterly images, to the sharply focused work of the 1930s, and after the War, when his images took on a cooler, higher-contrast style. ‘Photo-Secession: Painterly Masterworks of Turn-of-the-Century Photography’ features original masterworks from an international circle of painterly photographers known as the Photo-Secessionists. In the first years of the 1900s, these artists broke away from the mainstream use of the camera as a tool for mechanical reproduction to embrace the craftsmanship of labor-intensive processes to create rich, tonally subtle images. The rare vintage prints in this exhibition provide an exceptional opportunity to view the art of photography as it finds its expressive potential at the dawn of the twentieth century.
