Ansel Adams' grandson challenges negatives

Ansel Adams' grandson is unconvinced that several dozen glass plates found at a garage sale were photographic negatives created by the famed nature photographer.

Matthew Adams, who runs the Ansel Adams Gallery, said even if the photos are proven beyond a doubt to be authentic, they are not worth the $200 million value estimated by an art appraiser.

A lawyer for Rick Norsigian, the California man who paid $45 for the negatives a decade ago, said that based on overwhelming evidence gathered by a team experts "no reasonable person would have any doubt that these, in fact, were the long-lost images of Ansel Adams."

    Why are they trying to bring down the said value of there relatives work? Seems to degrade the photographer's work a bit.
    Smile @ other people's good fortune.
