    Pre-Lot Text

    'I am pleased and honored to have worked through more than half a century in the world of photography, and to have observed its ever-expanding potential as a medium of expression and communication. New aspects of seeing, new qualities of image and new levels of subjective and intellectual comprehension lie ahead.' (Ansel Adams, foreword to Portfolio VII)
