The Unique Opportunity

The Ansel Adams Gallery is thrilled to offer its collectors, friends and fellow art lovers, a chance to participate in a unique opportunity. From time to time on our website, we love to feature a hand-made image from one of our distinguished Gallery artists.


This month, we have arranged to present two limited edition images by Chuck Henningsen (1936-2016): “Ansel Adams at Olmsted Point, Yosemite” and "Clearing Storm." Very few of these prints are available, and you can now add one to your private collectio. Each photograph was printed by Mr. Henningsen in his studio to current archival standards, and is signed and numbered. The time to purchase will begin at 9:00 AM Pacific Time on Monday, February 15th, and will expire upon the close of business, Sunday, February 21st at 6:00 PM. Once the offer has expired, we anticipate an order fulfillment time of approximately four to five weeks to ensure the quality of each individual order. This offer is available for a very limited time, after which, the print will return to full price.


Email our curator, Evan Russel, at evan@anseladams.com if you have any additional questions about the prints or shipping.

Biography

Born in Des Moines, Iowa. Chuck Henningsen majored and honored in Industrial Engineering at Iowa State University. Upon graduation, he took his first job at still small Hewlitt-Packard in the 1950s, in the emergent Silicon Valley. After four years at HP, Chuck formed an electronics manufacturing firm with two partners, which in time grew to be a very successful venture - an early example of a Silicon Valley start-up.

However, the strain of Silicon Valley capitalism took its toll and one weekend in 1976, to escape the pressure, Chuck left for Yosemite for a weekend of solitude. What happened next changed his life, as he walked into The Ansel Adams Gallery, met Ansel and immediately decided to take up photography. He promptly purchased a Hasselblad camera system and signed up for a ten-day workshop with Ansel. After this, photography became a lifelong passion. Every spare moment was spent making photographs in both the field and darkroom.


HIs photographic pursuit eventually led him to the Southwest and the artistic community of Taos, New Mexico. He purchased property on Morada Lane, next door to the famed Mabel Dodge Luhan house and built a 2400 sq.ft state of the art, underground darkroom. Chuck applied the disciplined process of an engineer to exploring many photographic methods ranging from 19th century techniques to the early days of digital photography.


Chuck’s portrait of “Ansel Adams at Olmstead Point” (featured above) was made on his first roll and film, and was widely published. His “Clearing Storm” is strong example of one of the most famous views the world over, and is stunningly produced as a platinum coated print.


Unfortunately, just before we organized this offer, Chuck Henningsen passed away on January 18, 2016 [link to http://www.taosnews.com/entertainment/article_1e44a6c6-c69b-11e5-b22c-a70b1d207ec2.html]. He will be greatly missed in the photographic community.
