Ansel Adam?s was born in San Francisco, California, on February 20th, 1902. Adams first became interested in photography after seeing Paul Strand?s negatives, and the rest is history. Adams was a member of the Sierra Club, which was a group that was dedicated to preserving the natural world?s wonders and resources. This ties in to the fact that Adams was also an environmentalist, and he photographed many breathtaking images found in nature before there was any kind of human intervention, which really was a commentary on environmental issues that made people more aware of nature?s plight.
