The Ansel Adams Gallery is offering a special symposium to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of Ansel's birth (February 20, 1902), as well as the 100th Anniversary of Best's Studio/Ansel Adams Gallery.

SOME THOUGHTS ON PHOTOGRAPHY... AND OTHER TOPICS
Memorable comments by noted photographers, and others:
"There are no rules for good photographs, the are only good photographs."
- Ansel Adams
Almost all photographers have incurred large expenses in the pursuit of tiny audiences, finding the wonder theyd hoped to share is something few want to receive.
- Robert Adams from Why People Photograph
"The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them."
- Albert Einstein
I would like to wish all of you, and your families, a peaceful and happy Holiday season.
