This is one of those buildings that belongs in an architectural mish-mash post (which is the reason I took the picture in the first place, before realizing it was our intended destination) and, as you can see, there is no reason to believe there is a treasure trove of photography on display here. (There isn’t even any indication that there is a gallery.) None-the-less, my colleague was quite clear, so we go in and see if she is right.
Indeed, the Wilderness Society’s DC office includes a gallery featuring an amazing collection of photographs by Ansel Adams. It’s a little overwhelming, but also oh-so-wonderful to see these incredible image in a setting where we have them pretty much to ourselves for as long as we want. The exhibit covers a broad range of Adams work from many places and many points in time – the only constant is the high quality and beauty of the prints and, of course, Adams’ uncanny ability to perfectly capture the light.
This might be my new favorite place in DC.
