The Broken Shelf 114: Ansel Adams: Classic Images

The Broken Shelf

[Warning] This episode contains explicit language and explicit themes. Listener discretion is advised.Danny had to make up for his failure! The last time he review photography it was quite possibly the worst episode of The Broken Shelf. He knew it, the other co-hosts knew it, and they were all sure the audience knew it. This time around Danny didn't set out to find something 'easy'. He wanted structure and something that had a story to tell. Enter an American pioneer in the historical term and behind the camera. Chosen by the photographer himself, and with two classy essays about the man's life and the museum set included within, this collection has a historical backing full of informative context, and images that have the possibility to shake the audience to their core. Danny was moved by both the words and the art contained within. Using a top ten style, Danny makes up for his mistake!Tune in every Tuesday for a new episode of The Broken Shelf.~Follow all the Legionaries on Twitter~Danny: twitter.com/legionsarchiveThe Tsar: twitter.com/TsarAlexander6Allen: twitter.com/blkydpeaseSpangar: twitter.com/LSFspangar~Credits~Original Sound Cloud image provided by Abe Books at https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=30171111916&cm_mmc=ggl-_-COM_Shopp_Rare-_-naa-_-naa&gclid=CjwKCAiAnfjyBRBxEiwA-EECLF30sxp7rTx2R4n8ghhLn0B5H-SmlmzIrPCTLPXayjLrXPm6ZL_8eBoCSm0QAvD_BwEOriginal cover art is titled "Moon and Half Dome" and was taken in Yosemite National Park, California in 1960 by Ansel Adams.
