PBS Documentary About Ansel Adams

Here’s fantastic documentary film about Ansel Adams that PBS made for the history series American Experience.

[…] an elegant, moving, and lyrical portrait of this quintessentially American photographer. The documentary weaves together archival footage, photographic images, dramatic readings of the artist’s own writing, and interviews with leading photographers, historians, curators, naturalists, as well as Adams’s family, friends, and colleagues, to tell the story of a man who was at once a visionary photographer, a pioneer in photographic technique, and an ardent crusader for the cause of environmentalism.

It’s about 80 minutes long. You can find out more about the film here.
