He is considered one of the greatest photographers to ever hold a camera, capturing vivid landscape pictures in a black-and-white narrative. Now, a set of archived works Ansel Adams hoped to preserve will be on display at The Getty Center from March 18 to July 20.

According to the museum, Adams “sought to preserve his archive for future generations by creating the ‘Ansel Adams Museum Set,’ a portfolio of his greatest work.”

“Inspired by the recent acquisition of a ‘Museum Set,’ this exhibition also includes earlier works by Adams from the Museum’s permanent collection, offering visitors an opportunity to view changes in Adams’s printing styles and an understanding of the photographer’s assessment of his life’s work,” the Getty Center’s website stated about the new installation.

The ‘Ansel Adams Museum Set’ joins ‘A Royal Passion: Queen Victoria and Photography’ as the two leading still photography-themed exhibitions at the Getty Center.

During the installation’s second week, the Getty Center will host ‘Ansel Adams: the Wild and the Cultivated’ at the Harold M. Williams Auditorium. The lecture, which features Ansel Adams and the American Landscape author Jonathan Spaulding, will take place March 26 at 7 p.m.

On April 1 at 2:30 p.m., the Getty Center will host ‘In Focus: Ansel Adams’ as part of the Curator’s Gallery Talk.

The same gallery talk will be repeated June 3, also at 2:30 p.m.

Karen Hellman, Getty Center’s assistant curator of photographs, will lead both talks.

An environmentalist and photographer, some of Adams’ greatest works feature Yosemite National Park and other landscapes of the American West.

The four-month installation commemorates the 30-year anniversary of Adams’ death.

Adams passed away April 22, 1984. Coincidentally, April 22 is Earth Day.

The Getty Center is located at 1200 Getty Center Drive in Los Angeles. Admission is free, though parking is $15 before 5 p.m. and $10 after.

Closed on Mondays, the Getter Center is open Tuesday through Friday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
