Last chance to catch Photography from the Mountains to the Sea

27th March 2013

People visiting London haven't got long to take advantage of the rare opportunity to see the works of the great American photographer Ansel Adams as his exhibition at the National Maritime Museum is set to close next month.

Despite being most famous for his stunning images captured of the American west, Adams also had a lifelong obsession with photos of water and his exhibition - Ansel Adams: Photography from the Mountains to the Sea - perfectly encapsulates this.

The display focuses on his works in this field and it shows more than 100 images that he has captured from dramatic waterfalls to serene icescapes.

It has been at the National Maritime Museum since November 9th and it is set to be in situ until April 28th so those staying in central London hotels between now and then could consider heading along.

Many of the images have never been displayed in the UK before and they range from photos that he took as a youngster to the world famous snaps that he has taken in his lifetime such as the Golden gate before the Bridge.

Time Out said of the exhibition: "There's no dust in these exceptional images, nor any colour, but there is lots of water. Waves break into sculptural droplets, clouds overlook vast oceans, waterfalls still into marvellous permanence. The great manipulator rejoices in a medium nearly as versatile as his own, translating icicles, snow and spume into startling chiaroscuro or large-format sepia."

Visitors to the gallery will be able to attend for £7 and concessions for £6, while members can gain access for absolutely nothing.

Travelling there from your accommodation shouldn't provide too many issues as it is close to the Greenwich Tube stop.
