"Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art." Ansel Adams, Camera and Lens: The Creative Approach by Ansel Adams, 1970.
We are thankful for Ansel Adams's expressive images of nature. With less in the way of artistic intents, Bruce Molnia is another who has photographed in Alaska more recently with the mission to document the decline of the glaciers via climate change. This article in SnowAddiction.org is an excellent example of some terrific and precise documentary work by Molnia. (The photographs above provide just one example of the many old-new juxtapositions found in this article.)
