Adams revisited

I'm standing in front of the photographies of Ansel Adams. Which readings of the american landscape remain, facing these monumental, super-detailed photos?
I move around in this little space in front of his photos and from different perspectives I take pictures of them. In doing so the landscapes change, distortions appear, his straight photographic view gets blurry. I suddenly regain my eye. His landscapes turn into models.
