If you’re reading this blog, then there is no doubt you’ve also heard about the recent Ansel Adams attribution "scandal". Not surprisingly, the evidence is piling up against the California man who bought the negatives in question at a garage sale.

We at the Carter are lucky to have over 60 authentic Ansel Adams prints in the permanent collection, many of which are on view in the exhibition Ansel Adams: Eloquent Light through November 7.

Our Photo of the Week is comes from this exhibition. It’s one of Adams’s images of my favorite place in Texas, Big Bend National Park.

I have never felt so small as when I stood inside that canyon. It's a very powerful place.
