CHASING ANSEL ADAMS is the culmination of a four year pilgrimage into the wilds of the American West. Macpherson’s photographs are a celebration of the National Parks and an homage to photographer and environmentalist, Ansel Adams.
“Referring to the musical parallels Adams made to his own photographic process, I approached this project as a musician preparing to play Beethoven. Orchestras and conductors play the great masters, so why could I not play Adams? Not to copy or mimic, but to experience standing in alignment with this great master, giving my own performance. My goal, to see and experience California through his eyes and to channel his passion for the photograph in my own way.”
