About Catherine Kravitz...
As the Collections Manager and docent of the Lone Pine Film History Museum, Catherine Kravitz, rarely gets to wander the Alabama Hills or even see the sun for that matter. When asked if she would like to create a tour of the different sites Ansel Adams visited and photographed, she jumped at the opportunity. Using her skills as a former researcher, she took 2.5 months and 25 books to gain background and insight in Ansel Adams. Coupled with her experience in the art world as an art gallery owner and her communication skills as a docent, she gets to do what she loves; talk about an amazing artist and share some beautiful locations linked to an outstanding artist.
