The Indulgence of a Muse – Redux

WIP 3 2021

In 1979, MoMA in NYC presented “Ansel Adams and the West” [MoMA Exh. #1273, September 5–October 28, 1979]

It was a retrospective that included versions of prints he made from the same negative, over 20 years.

Like Eric Clapton sang, trying to “get the music right”

This only took me 3 years

Her patience and trust allowed the slower pace and uncertain outcome of film

I’ve been very lucky – when I needed a Muse, the Muse was there

Comfort

Sometimes, when you make a photograph, it’s captured in your camera and your heart.

And later, you go back and see it anew. And edit your memory.

Before I mashed the button, I asked Mom’s permission with my facial expression. She nodded assent.
