The birthplace of classic photographs: Get an inside look at Ansel Adams’ darkroom

If you enjoyed taking a trip back in time with previously unreleased footage of Ansel Adams last week, then you will really love the recently completed video tour of the late legend's darkroom.

Ansel's son, Michael, recently gave Marc Silber an in-depth look at the darkroom and provided some nice background information and stories about his father. Much of Ansel Adams' work that we enjoy today was created in the darkroom seen below.

Marc notices that this is different from any other darkroom he's seen, and that's because Ansel developed his own set-up and arrangement for his equipment, such as his enlarger and the light array he used for exposing prints. It's great to have the opportunity to see the place where one of America's foremost photographers created so many classic images.
