NUPUR NANAL

Tehelka - - PHOTOGRAPHY - NANAL

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.
