Legendary photographer Ansel Adams is the subject of a documentary written and directed by Ric Burns '78 and co-produced by Steve Rivo '93. It will debut on PBS on Sunday, April 21 at 9 p.m. (check local listings).

Few American photographers — indeed, few artists of any kind — have reached a wider audience or enjoyed more widespread popularity in their own lifetime than Adams, who was born in San Francisco in February 1902 in the years following the closing of the American frontier and who died in 1984. Ansel Adams, a 90-minute documentary on the centennial of the artist's birth, provides a moving portrait of this most eloquent and quintessentially American of photographers.

Ansel Adams is a presentation of American Experience and commissioned by Sierra Club Productions.
