The 116 pics come from a collection rescued from auction by a pair of art-loving Texans. The photos were assembled years ago by Adams for a San Francisco-based picture-taking organization he founded. They span 60 years, ending in the early 80s, when he died. They include examples from his entire oeuvre -- from breathtaking landscapes to portraits of friends to still lifes in nature. These are key works -- masterworks from his entire career, says Hinson. We get to see firsthand how he chose to sequence them.
Hinson hopes viewers spot the beauty in Adams photos, as well as recognize the artists singular point-of-view. It is an entirely subjective process, he says. Instead of a grand vista, you may find beauty in a tiny detail, the composition, or the interplay of light. This is how he wanted to be remembered.
