Ansel Adams: Photographs from the Lane Collection 

Ansel Adams had a knack for creating photographs of the American West that perfectly captured the grandeur of what must surely be God's country -- you could almost hear strains of "America the Beautiful" when you looked at them. But he also did other stuff, and this generous selection from Lane Collection, the largest private archive of his work, mainly focuses on that other stuff. So beyond the occasional promontory, there are also unexpected views of Cape Cod architecture, New York skyscrapers and even San Francisco political posters on corrugated tin siding -- images that place him much closer to his peers in 20th century American photography, suggesting that he also had a life beyond his days dragging big, heavy cameras across the American West in search of that perfect angle on God's country. -- D. Eric Bookhardt
