Ansel Adams and the Photo Dance, San Juan Bautista, California

  • Sale
  • Regular price $125.00

Because of Ansel and Edwin Land’s decades-long friendship and mutual admiration, all varieties of Polaroid films and cameras were always in plentiful supply. As a result, Ansel was frequently out “testing” Polaroid films. One day, we we decided to take a little spin down to San Juan Bautista (home to a fabulous Mission) so Ansel could do some testing. He was in one of his usual good moods, and had fun doing a little dance with his dark cloth as we were setting up. A Polaroid SX-70 in hand, I captured this moment of magic. It remains one of my favorite images of Ansel. 

Note: This unique print is made from a high-resolution scan of the Polaroid print.
