Yosemite Special Edition Photographs are the closest photographic reproductions to Ansel’s original masterpieces, painstakingly handcrafted from his negatives by former assistant Alan Ross. Alan Ross worked under Ansel’s direct observation from 1975 until 1984, and has been producing the series in accordance to Ansel's instructions ever since. Each silver photograph shimmers with brilliance, with richly perfected black and white tones. From a selection of 29 stunning images of Yosemite, each photograph is printed in 8x10 inches and authorized by the Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust. With professional framing available, this collection ranges in price from $375 (mounted and matted) to $800 (framed).

We invite you to stand with Ansel in his commitment to honoring and cherishing the unparalleled beauty of Yosemite by showcasing an Ansel Adams Yosemite Special Edition Photograph. As an owner of a Special Edition Photograph, you too can share Ansel's vision, inspiring others to preserve and protect Yosemite for years to come.


 

Modern Replicas were born from the desire of the artist's family to create a collection of Ansel Adams prints that showcased the artist throughout his career and delivered at a level of quality comparable to an original. The collection of Modern Replicas span Ansel's lifetime of exploration in Yosemite, and also beyond to the remote wonders of the Southwest, the expanses of Alaska, the forests of the Pacific Northwest, and the coastlines of California and New England. Each black and white replica is reproduced directly from an original photograph by Ansel Adams, and carefully crafted to mirror the photograph's brilliance and richness in contrast and tone.  

Exclusively from The Ansel Adams Gallery, these digitally-mastered prints leverage modern technologies, not available during Ansel's lifetime, in order to allow more people the enjoyment of owning and displaying an Ansel Adams piece. Available in a variety of sizes, up to 40x50 inches, Modern Replicas offer the flexibility to enhance both the larger and more intimate spaces of your home. Modern Replicas will stand the test of time. Made with museum-quality materials estimated to last over 180 years, their heavy paper mimics the look and feel of gelatin silver paper, and multiple pigments reflect the tones and highlights of Ansel's original works. Each replica can be finished with a custom frame of your choice, arriving at your home ready to hang. Authorized by the Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust, this collection ranges in price from from $149 to $1,899 depending on size and framing.

Join us in celebrating a full range of some of Ansel's finest work, featuring America's wild places, its national parks, and its great mountain ranges. As an owner of an Ansel Adams Modern Replica, you become a part of the story behind these images—of wildness and wilderness, that spans generations and continues to inspire us today—to see, revere, and protect the Earth.

About the Images

Lake Tenaya

Ansel Adams made this image around 1940. He took the photo around the corner from Olmstead Point on the Tioga Road. Later, Adams joined Sierra Club President David Brower and others in a long campaign to oppose rerouting the Tioga Road near Tenaya Lake . Despite protests, the Park Service built the new road -- it would be visible in this photograph if taken today -- inspiring Adams to pen the elegy "Tenaya Tragedy!!!" published in 1958. When driving east on the Tioga Road, this vista provides a breathtaking first glimpse of Tenaya Lake framed by the soaring peaks of Mt. Hoffman, Medlicott Dome, Tenaya Peak, Tuolomne Peak, and Mt. Conness in the background. Stumps dot the surface of Tenaya Lake , some of them quite a distance from the shoreline. Read More

 

Winter Sunrise, Sierra Nevada from Lone Point

On four successive mornings Adams tried to take this photograph from the east side of the Sierra. On the fifth day it was still dark and bitterly cold when he set up his camera on the new platform on top of his car and retreated to the warm interior. As dawn drew near, he returned to the camera to await the sun's first rays on the meadow. "I finally ...Read More

 

Cathedral Peak and Lake

Ansel Adams made this image in 1938 during an outing with friends, notably Georgia O'Keeffe and David McAlpin, in the Yosemite backcountry with a 3" x 4" camera. Though the granite bowl and soaring peak are classic archetypes of the remote high sierra, Cathedral Lake lies only four miles from an easily accessible trailhead at Tuolomne Meadows.
As was Adams' habit, he meticulously ...Read More
