Sierra Foothill Forest

c1942. Vintage silver gelatin photograph, titled, annotated and negative number “I-CAL-352” in ink with photographer’s stamp on backing verso, 19.2 x 23.9cm. Retouched minor chips to edges of image, laid down on original backing.

Stamp includes “Photograph by Ansel Adams for American Trust Company…Proof. Not to be used for reproduction or display.” Annotation reads “Forest near Jackson.”

This image seems to be unrecorded and does not appear in any references to date. Adams may have taken this photograph during his visit to Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming in 1942 when he took the now famous image entitled Snake River, Jackson Hole.

The image displays a method often employed by Adams, of focusing on a light-coloured tree or branch in the centre of a darker landscape.
