Summary
Ernest Knee (1907-1982) was a gifted photographer and Howard Hughes's personal photographer. He was the first cameraman to record Angel Falls. Montreal-born Knee first visited Santa Fe in 1931 and soon set up a darkroom on Camino del Monte Sol, joining the ranks of a flourishing art community. He became friends with many artists and photographers of his time, including Edward Weston, Gustave Baumann, Ansel Adams, Georgia O'Keeffe, and Laura Gilpin. Knee's landscape work remains a primary achievement in New Mexico's photographic history. Dana Knee has restored and edited some five thousand large-format negatives, many never printed by the photographer in his lifetime, selecting over one hundred images for the first published retrospective of Knee's work.
