Ansel Adams Talks About His Work - Videos

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art recently wrapped-up an exhibit of works by Ansel Adams. But if you missed it, as I did, you can see some great Ansel Adams content on the museum's website. Ansel Adams at 100 is an interactive exploration of Adams's work. Click on any image in the display to learn about the process of capturing the image and sharing the image with the world. In many cases you can hear audio recordings of Adams talking about a particular photograph. Visitors to the SFMOMA site will also find six short videos of Adams talking about his work.

Thanks to Open Culture for the links.

Applications for Education
For anyone that teaches art, particularly photography, Ansel Adams at 100 and the videos of Ansel Adams could be great teaching resources.
