Richard MisrachExploring the Legacy of Ansel Adams

In connection with the de Young Museum’s 2023 exhibition Ansel Adams in Our Times, a video from Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco’s FAMSF Presents series explores Adams’s connection with Richard Misrach, who is featured in the show.

Misrach describes his relationship with Adams, who he knew in the 1970s, and talks about what he learned from him, and the influence of his legacy on photography more broadly.
