    Hi Everyone,
    For my photography degree I have to write a comparison essay on two contrasting photographs. One of the photographs I have chosen is by Ansel Adams. The photograph is called "The Tetons and the Snake River". Try as I might I cannot find any information relating to the picture. There are plenty of websites showing the image and plenty of books showing the image. But I cannot find any info on why he took it and what inspired him to take it, also what equipment he used. Does anyone out there know where I can find any facts about the photograph.

    Help appreciated,
    Pat.

    Had a quick trawl through Google and it seems the University of Arizona Centre for Creative Photography has an extensive Ansel Adams archive. It may be worth an email to them.

    I had the opportunity to visit this location in 2008, and have to say its one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen. Even people with no interest in photography would probably be impressed by it. My guess, for what its worth, is that Adams captured the image to covey the beauty of the location....and succeeded greatly. However, I am unfortunately unable to answer your questions! Let us know if you find out.

    It might be worth looking at the photograph taken from a similar viewpoint, of the same scene, by Minor White, or is this the contrasting image you are using? I have a couple of biographies of Adams and I'll see if I can find any mention of the image and/or the process.
