Adams pic­tures ver­i­fied

Austin American-Statesman - - WEDNESDAY BRIEFING -

A lawyer says glass neg­a­tives bought in Cal­i­for­nia for $45 have been au­then­ti­cated as the work of iconic pho­tog­ra­pher Ansel

Adams, worth at least $200 mil­lion. At­tor­ney Arnold Peter says a team of ex­perts has con­cluded the 65 neg­a­tives are some of Adams’ early work, thought to have been de­stroyed in a fire decades ago.

The neg­a­tives were bought 10 years ago at a garage sale in Fresno by painter Rick Nor­si­gian, who saw they re­sem­bled Adams’ pho­to­graphs of Yosemite Na­tional Park.
