Ansel Adams' Grandson: 'Lost' Negatives Aren't Real
A California man who bought a collection of glass negatives at a garage sale says they have been authenticated as lost works of Ansel Adams, but the photographer's grandson isn't so sure.

"I think it's irresponsible to claim that they're Ansel's," Matthew Adams told AOL News. "We think it's a very significant claim and we think it's not accurate." picked by zombeej85 2 months ago

 Ansel Adams photo proofs on view
Ansel Adams photo proofs on view
They are photos Ansel Adams never intended anyone to see- tiny proofs taken with a handheld camera.
Now, over the objections of the trust that controls use of Adams' work, the proofs are on display at a small museum.
His biographer, Mary Alinder, said the photographer would never have authorized the exhibit. picked by marli 3 years ago
