Edward Weston and Ansel Adams, two visionaries in the world of photography, were great buddies who traveled and collaborated together while creating their art.
Edward and Ansel both resided in the Carmel Highlands toward the end of their lives and lived just down the highway from one another. Today, the descendants of both Edward and Ansel still occupy those same dwellings.
Michael and Jeanne Adams have kept Ansel's darkroom and workspace in tact, as it is an important piece of photographic history. Michael graciously gave us a tour of the workspace, showing how Ansel would process his negatives and print his photographs while we were over for dinner.
The roots of photography run deep in both the Adams and Weston families; it is always a special experience to continue the old tradition of discussing art and sharing experiences over good food.
