There's several other photographers that are being approached, and
we're trying to encourage them, because there's going to be a
handsome space available, and they intend some day to build a
special center, a building, just for the Center.

Teiser: Did I get the implication that no exhibit prints would ever come
from it, only reproduction prints?

Adams: Yes, there would be no exhibit prints. There would be prints for
reproduction, for educational purposes. And then there is another
possibility that certain negatives will be so designated as to
carry out my idea, often expressed, that the negative is equivalent
to the composer's score, and the print is the performance. So
advanced students approved by the committee may be able to take my
negatives and interpret them but not for sale; it will be as a
matter of education.

Teiser: Oh, that's an interesting idea.

Teiser: Well, one thing more that I guess you might, if you wish to, put on
the tape something about your photographic session with Imogen
Cunningham and her commission for People magazine.*

Adams: It was quite marvelous. They commissioned Imogen to make pictures
of me. The western representative, the writer, was bringing her
down. And she did quite a series of pictures and some of them were
very good. I did quite a series of pictures of her. We had quite
a happy day of it; it was very satisfactory. She's really marvelous



*The result appeared in the issue of March 17, 1975.

Adams: at ninety-two, and she really controls herself very well; she took
a two-hour snooze after lunch and really worked very hard. And I
posed and posed and posed, and she got some good things.

But we were going to develop these negatives here; she wasn't
going to send those rolls on to New York. She was going to develop
and pick the pictures she liked. So we developed the rolls, dried
them as fast as we could, Alan Ross made strip proofs, and we dried
them in the microwave oven. [Laughter] Takes about sixty seconds
to dry an 8-10 print, and it dries beautifully. Anyway, that was
fun.

Then the last thing that happened was a New York radio
station television show the Reasoner show, came out here, a whole
crew, and did a news story about me news on personalities. So
they came and they photographed me working and they talked to the
students from Eugene, Oregon, who happened to be here. Then they
came and photographed my birthday party. Then we went to Point
Lobos and did more pictures in the darkroom. It was quite a take
out. I had a fine time. They spent an awful lot of time with it.
They say it will take only between three and four hours of your
time; they'll set up and they'll just move in. Well, it takes
three or four days you can't really concentrate on anything else
because the house is just full of lights gosh, it's terrible.

Teiser: You also were on the "Today Show" you said earlier.

Adams: Well, that trip was on the book Images , in Washington, at the

opening of my show at the Corcoran Gallery. Then I flew up to New
York that night to be on the "Today Show" the following morning,
and then I had to fly right back. That worked out very well, but
because of the Rockefeller hearings the "Today Show" was canceled
in the West. So it was only seen in the East and Midwest.

I'm always happy to get good comments on things, but negative
comments do me more good. You know, in the end you learn more from
negative comments. I wish that people would be more critical of
what they see, but people write cards and say, "I saw you on the
'Today Show' and it was great," and so on. But what really
happened the nitty-gritty is important, and that's what I didn't
feel.

Only one thing on the "Today Show" the microphone was under
my shirt, and I had my glasses off, and I'd talk and I'd move my
glasses against my chest, creating a loud crash. And that happened
on another show.

So I went to Dallas for the book [Images] , to Houston, to
Cleveland, to Minneapolis, to Chicago, to Washington, to New York,
to Boston, to Detroit, to San Francisco. Then I was due in Los



747



Adams: Angeles, Santa Barbara, Portland, and Seattle, but by that time I
was absolutely exhausted and had high blood pressure, and the
doctor ordered me to terminate the tour.

But the book signing sessions are not so bad; it's just that
they keep you going. You sign for a couple of hours and talk to
people, and then you have to go to a radio session and be
interviewed or televised. Then you take a plane to another
location, and that's the way it goes.

Teiser: Well, I'm glad you recovered from it.

Adams: I seem to have recovered from it. [Laughter]

Teiser: That brings us up to this moment, does it?

Adams: I guess it does. I can't think of anything.

Teiser: The recent occasion was your seventy-third birthday.

Adams: It's dismal to think about it I look in the mirror and think of
it as thirty-seven, but things don't look quite right.

Anyway, things are going well, and we're planning on the
Southwest book, and Portfolio Seven I guess Portfolio Seven comes
first. And then in a couple of years hopefully a very handsome
book on Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada. Then also the revision of
the Polaroid book and my technical books.
