Adams pictures verified
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.
New prints have been made from Ansel Adams glass negatives authenticated in California.
