Ansel Adams DECAYING HOUSE

On October 20, 1972, during the installation of the exhibit "Octave of Prayer," at MIT's Hayden Gallery in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Minor White handed me a wall label that read, "Ansel Adams DECAYING HOUSE" and said, "Jim, do something fun with this." About a year later, after leaving work at Imogen Cunningham's house in San Francisco, I visitied an antique shop nearby and, thinking about the relationship between Ansel, Minor and Imogen, purchased the frame that now houses the label that Minor gave to me.

Signed, archival pigment prints from Ansel Adams DECAYING HOUSE are available for purchase. Contact jim@jamesfriedmanphotographer.com with inquiries about purchases, gallery representation, printed-on-paper and online publication and museum and gallery exhibition initiatives.
