Details Finishing & Additional Information
 
Ansel Adams made this image around 1959 with an 8" x 10" view camera.
The image was once used in a commercial job, as he recalls in "Ansel
Adams: An Autobiography:"

“In 1969, for one of my last commercial jobs, I selected a photograph,
"Yosemite Valley , Winter"…for reproduction on a Hills Brothers coffee
can. The idea was to produce something of lasting attractiveness after
the original contents of the can had been consumed…Potentially corny:
actually reasonable. There were thousands of three-pound cans filled
with coffee sold nationwide in grocery stores for $2.35 each."

When she saw the coffee cans, reliably acerbic Imogen Cunningham
criticized him for selling out. Cunningham had shown her work alongside
Adams and Edward Weston in the 1932 Group f/64 Exhibition at the M.H. de
Young Memorial Museum in San Francisco . To make her point, she had a
friend deliver one of the cans filled with manure complete with a
sprouting marijuana plant dubbing it a "pot in a pot."

Ansel Adams took the ribbing well, saying:

"I enjoyed Imogen's joke, but when my good friend and fellow
photographer Henry Gilpin, then deputy sheriff of Monterey County ,
dropped by and spotted the plant he quietly suggested that I destroy it.
I did.”

In addition to being 'published' on the coffee can, it is on the cover
of Yosemite and the High Sierra.

Reviewer: Carissa Cronenwett  
I've always wanted an Ansel Adams print, and years later I finally got one. It arrived very quickly, and I got the custom gray frame. It is so beautiful! So very happy with this purchase, can't wait to get another one. Thank you so much!
