"Ansel Adams, Environmentalist and Photographer” | A Slide Lecture by Lance Hidy

Haverhill, MA, November 3, 2018

Photographer Ansel Adams (1902–1984) devoted his life to sharing the transformative power of wilderness through his art, and to leading the environmental movement.

Speaker Lance Hidy was handpicked by Adams to collaborate on the final book of his career, "Yosemite and the Range of Light, (1979).

Hidy continues to design the official Ansel Adams books for the Ansel Adams Trust and publisher Little, Brown & Company. Through his first-hand experience, Hidy brings a personal perspective to the Ansel Adams story.

After graduating from Yale and cofounding the Boston publishing firm of David R. Godine, Hidy established his own design studio in 1973, when he expanded his practice to include posters, illustration, and photog­raphy, while incorporating his love of printmaking with his training in letter forms.

Hidy’s writings on design history and practice have been widely published.

A former art director of Harvard Business Review, he designed the typeface Penumbra for Adobe, designed three U.S. postage stamps, and specializes in corporate identity and logo design. He currently works as an accessibility specialist at NECC, helping faculty design courses that are more user-friendly.
