Commissioned by the Ansel Adams Gallery
for the celebration of Ansel's 100th birthday celebration
Yosemite National Park
Ansel's two oldest darkroom assistants are featured in this short film as they were not able to join this celebration at Yosemite

During the celebration in Yosemite all of Ansel's former darkroom assistants were invited, Iris Arts was commissioned to film each of them.  The theme of each interview was structured focusing on what they had learned from their time with Ansel Adams, how that had impacted their photographic work, and what they had passed on to their students..  The idea of this progression was to look at what we learn from our teachers/mentors and what knowledge is then transmitted to our students.
