Travel & Nature Videos: “Built From Within” In Wyoming Featuring Ansel Adams By Janssen Powers

Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Janssen Powers

Narration by: Ansel Adams
Sound Design/ Mix by: Steve Horne
Score by: Janssen Powers & Harrison Allen

My wife and I disappeared into the Rocky Mountains for a week last summer on a mission to complete the Teton Crest Trail. We decided to bring my 16mm camera along to document the 40-mile trek, figuring that the footage would last a lot longer than any bruises made by our heavy packs.

In hindsight, now going on six-weeks cooped up inside a NYC apartment, deciding to shoot this trip feels like one of the best decisions we’ve made. Like many of us in these uncertain times, I’ve been on a bit of an emotional roller coaster lately, but this footage has given me an escape.

Here’s to hoping that someone else can find some solace in it as well. Happy Earth Day.

In addition, he had an ongoing passion for photographing the American landscape. Rogers was skilled with his large format view camera, and loved to make prints in his darkroom. Regarding his photography, he said, “I am an impulsive obsessive. I impulsively get involved with something, and then I get obsessed with it. So that’s what happened with photography.”
