American photographer Ansel Adams has been a source of inspiration for contemporary photographers. His black and white images of mountain ranges depict natural beauty like no other artist could without the use of colour. In the dark room, he came up with revolutionary ideas to develop images like the zone system. The images he captured require a lot of imagination and are technically brilliant, especially for the time that they were created in. There is something grand and supernatural about his picture Moonrise, which is one of my favourites. He made inanimate objects come alive.
