In a purely technical sense, each species of higher organism is richer in information than a Caravaggio painting, Bach fugue, or any other great work of art.

Ansel Easton Adams

Ansel Easton Adams (February 20, 1902 - April 22, 1984) was an American photographer, best known for his black-and-white photographs of the American West.

Adams also wrote many books about photography, including his trilogy of technical manuals (The Camera, The Negative and The Print); co-founded Group f/64 with other masters like Edward Weston, Willard Van Dyke, and Imogen Cunningham; and created, with Fred Archer, the zone system . The zone system is a technique for photographers to translate the light they see into specific densities on negatives and paper, thus giving them better control over finished photographs. Adams also pioneered the idea of visualization (which he often called 'previsualization', though he later acknowledged that term to be a redundancy) of the finished print based upon the measured light values in the scene being photographed.
