Ansel Adams Arca-Swiss 4 x 5 view camera outfit

Lot # 55 (Sale Order: 61 of 187)      

Arca-Swiss 4 x 5 view camera outfit, owned and used by Ansel Adams from about 1964 until 1968.This view camera was used by Ansel Adams, then given to Liliane DeCock, his full-time photographic assistant. Liliane continued to use this equipment during her time as Ansels’ assistant, and for her own photography and travels throughout the United States. It has been retained by her son since her passing in 2013. All of the movements are functioning correctly, and the bellows appears to be light tight. The lenses stop down and the shutters are working. Everything that was in the case has been left there. This is a rare opportunity to own an iconic view camera outfit owned and used by one of he most prominent photgraphers of our time—real, and all original—WOW! “Under the guidance of Ansel Adams and with a 4 x 5 inch camera lent to her by the artist, Morgan began photographing the landscape and soon developed a unique vision and printing style which utilizes the full tonal scale of the medium with a strong attention to the melancholic values.” Joseph Bellows Gallery. “Liliane worked with the famed photographer, Ansel Adams, for nine years, and began her own photography career after Adams loaned her a camera. She used a four-by-five inch camera lent to her by Adams, and she traveled the country on vacations to photograph landscapes,” said Willard Morgan, her son. “What she really appreciated about that time and about Ansel was … that he had a very expansive view of what’s possible,” her son said. “She came to him with not a lot of experience and [he was] able to see that potential and nurture it quietly.” In 1972, Morgan received a Guggenheim Fellowship and her work was exhibited at acclaimed venues including the Witkin Gallery in New York. That same year, Morgan was married to her husband, Douglas Morgan. The two had been introduced to each other by Adams.“They got married in Ansel Adams’ living room in Carmel (California), and Ansel Adams gave my mother away,” Morgan said. “He was in some ways like a father figure … he really supported her in all different ways at that phase of her life.” This collection has never been seen or offered to the public before this auction. In our research, we could not find an Ansel Adams view camera that has ever been sold or available prior to the Arca-Swiss we are presenting. We have done our best to accurately present the items, conditions and provenance of all of these important pieces. Most of the items in this collection are considered “professionally used” equipment, and as such, shows signs of wear and use. We have not made any effort to clean, repair, adjust or lubricate any of the items, instead, leaving all items in “as found” condition for the discerning collector. Certificates of Authenticity are available on any of the DeCock–Morgan Collection items listed..

Willard D. Morgan’s Leica IIIc

Lot # 56 (Sale Order: 62 of 187)      

Willard D. Morgan’s Leica IIIc, Nr. 418630, Elmar 35 mm lens Nr. 1556079, accessories and leather case. As “the” Leica pioneer in the US, Willard Morgan had established a long-lasting relationship with E. Leitz, Germany. He used several of their 35 mm cameras throughout his photographic career—starting in 1928 with a Leica A. This Leica IIIc was owned and used by Willard from 1946 to 1950. In 1950, Willard gave the Leica to Douglas Morgan, his son. Douglas continued using this camera to document various US trips and family events. Considered the “father” of Leica 35 mm photography in the United States, technical writer and Leica designer, original Willard Morgan Leica equipment is both historically important and certainly highly collectible—a pivotal piece for any collection. Willard Morgan, through his photos and articles, was a pioneer in the use of the 35 mm Leica rangerfinder format in the US. His contributions as a photographer, designer, writer and typographer are monumental, and he is certainly a key figure in the development and use of the Leica camera. This 1946 Leica IIIc, Nr. 418630 is one of 3 we have identified as being used by Willard in his career—the other 2 are a 1928 Leica A and a 1939 IIIb—all great pieces of Leica history!
