72 iconic nature images by nature photographer Ansel Adams on display in Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - A collection of iconic images by nature photographer Ansel Adams is going display in Myrtle Beach.

The exhibit opens at the Burroughs and Chapin Art Museum on Tuesday and continues through Sept. 21.

A touring exhibit is from the Lakeview Museum of Arts & Sciences of Peoria, Illinois in affiliation with the Smithsonian Institution.

The collection includes 72 black and white images Adams printed for his daughter. It is part of a portfolio he conceived in the 1970s as the best images from his career.

Most of the images are landscapes, but there are also close-up nature works, portraits and architectural subjects.

An opening reception is being held on Tuesday with a talk by Andrea Stillman, Adams' former assistant and author of a book on Adams.
