"In my mind's eye, I visualize how a particular . . . sight and feeling will appear on a print. If it excites me, there is a good chance it will make a good photograph. It is an intuitive sense, an ability that comes from a lot of practice." Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams' skill at creating photographs with a remarkable range and subtly of tones is legendary. Yet for all his technical mastery, Adams recognized that what made a compelling photograph was far more elusive. Sight and Feeling includes 23 of Adams' photographs from the KIA collection and suggests how his intuitive and emotional response to the landscape resulted in powerful and enduring photographs.

This exhibition is located on the lower level of the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts.
