“The sheer ease with which we can produce a superficial image often leads to creative disaster.”
"A Personal Credo” (1943), published in American Annual of Photography (1944)
In the full context of Ansel Adams’ quote, he compares the ease with which a simple photograph can be produced to the lengthy time and effort put into the creation of a good etching or watercolour. A great photograph however, follows a similar considered, process driven approach as would any etcher / watercolourist. The manner in which Adams mastered his medium, and believed in the depth of the medium, is akin to the artists we have selected for this exhibition; methodical in their approach, the resultant work is a product of their obsessive meticulous processes.
