You may be familiar with Adams's iconic black-and-white nature photographs. But do you know about the artist who created these images? As a child, Ansel Adams just couldn't sit still. He felt trapped indoors and never walked anywhere --- he ran. Even when he sat, his feet danced. But in nature, Ansel felt right at home.
