$200 million Ansel Adams or $45 Garage Sale Photograph?

Ansel Adams Mountains

A claim that a $45.00 garage sale find of Ansel Adams negatives supposedly worth $200 million is growing more dubious.   

"Matthew Adams, who runs the Ansel Adams Gallery, said even if they are authenticated, they are not worth much beyond their historical value."

The "controversy took a bitter turn a day after California wall painter Rick Norsigian and his lawyer held a news conference at Streets' Beverly Hills art gallery to say they have proof the negatives were created by Ansel Adams."
