Ansel Adams in Riverside

About This Photo Share Purchase This Photo
  • Location: Riverside, Illinois


To paraphrase Homer Simpson, I like my beer cold, my TV loud and my black and white photos contrasty as hell.  There are soft black/white images that utilize, dare I say, 50 shades of grey.  Those are not my black/white photos though.

Thanks to a childhood filled with watching the very best black/white movies like Citizen Kane, The Third Man and A Touch of Evil (you may notice a commonality between those titles, namely Orson Welles’ presence), I am drawn to the darkest blacks and the whitest whites in my photos.  If you saw the color version of this photo with the same amount of contrast, it would be a wretched photo, an affront to the eyes.  However, in black/white, this works beautifully.

What size photo do you recommend getting?

When purchasing photos, we recommend that you get the largest size that will fit both your budget and your wall. One large piece tends to be more striking than three smaller pieces.

What type of photo paper do you print on?

All new photos are printed exclusively on Kodak Professional Endura Metallic paper. Sale priced items may be printed on other stock.

What type of frames do you offer?

We offer only one type of frame. A half inch, black metal frame (give or take a 1/8 inch) that looks exactly like the one surrounding the images on this website. All frames are custom made and come standard with acid-free mattes and non-glare glass.
