The word “fun” does not usually crop up in conversations about Ansel Adams. The Californian photographer, whose large-scale, black-and-white pictures of the American wilderness made him a national hero (not to mention a valuable commodity: a print of his 1942 shot The Grand Tetons and the Snake River sold last December for almost a million dollars) is better known for the meticulous “Zone System” he formulated in pursuit of the perfect negative, than for his wit or bonhomie.
