NFL’s ‘NFL Network’ will feature exclusive coverage of National Geographic’s Ansel Adams: Boudoir Photography series
NFL Network, the NFL Network’s digital network that launched this year, will air exclusive Boudouoir Photography coverage every week of the regular season.
The series, which includes photos by Adams and other National Geographic photographers, will begin airing this weekend.
“We are thrilled to be able to continue our partnership with National Geographic,” NFL Network co-chairman Bill Polian said in a statement.
“Ansel Adams’ work will be featured on the NFLN, and we look forward to celebrating his legacy.”
Adams was born in England and spent most of his life in New York.
He went to the University of Texas and graduated in 1972.
He then spent several years as a producer for Sports Illustrated, which was the first magazine to feature Boudier, and was later named one of the 10 most influential photographers of all time by the Society of Professional Journalists.
Ansel and his wife, Rachel, founded the Boudounoir Photography Institute in 1976.
“Boudoir is about creating a space where you can be comfortable, where you’re not embarrassed to be yourself, and where you feel comfortable sharing yourself with the world,” he said in 2014.
“It’s not about getting naked, it’s not going to change you, it is just a reflection of you.”
Adams’ photos are often seen in the magazine’s photography portfolio, but he has also written about the impact of photography in popular culture.
His book “The Bigger Picture” won the 2011 National Magazine Award and is available in hardcover and ebook formats.
He has also appeared in a number of documentaries.
Adams was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Photography in 2009 for his photos of the Vietnam War, and his other book, “The Boudourist’s Companion,” won the Pulitzer in 2014 for “A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.”
