Ansel Adams: In Our Time

Coming soon to the Portland Art Museum is a special exhibition featuring the work of esteemed photographer Ansel Adams and the contemporary photographers he influenced. On this episode of Art Unbound, we get a taste of what’s to come from the curators themselves. Julia Dolan, The Minor White Curator of Photography, speaks with the exhibition’s originating curator, Karen Haas, MFA Boston’s Lane Senior Curator of Photographs.

Julia and Karen discuss their own personal histories of exhibiting Ansel Adams’ work, as well as William and Saundra Lane, the collectors who make exhibitions like these possible.
