Lessons from Ansel Adams

  • California Museum of Art Thousand Oaks 350 West Hillcrest Drive (Oaks Mall - 2nd Floor - Midway between Macy's and Nordstroms) Thousand Oaks United States (map)

Ansel Adams is one of the most acclaimed photographers of all time, but an equally important and enduring aspect of his legacy is that of a teacher and mentor to an entire generation of photographers including entrepreneur and philanthropist, Larry Janss.

Janss, whose personal collection of Adams' iconic black-and-white vistas comprises CMATO's newest exhibition, began as a student of Adams but would quickly establish a partnership and lifelong friendship, assisting the renowned photographer with numerous projects throughout the course of Adams' life.

Janss will share stories of his time spent working with Adams, including accompanying the artist on his final trip to Yosemite and witnessing first-hand Adams' technical mastery of the photographic medium, with KCLU's Lance Orozco on Thursday, February 21, exclusively at CMATO.
