Inquiries & Questions
​It started with the Norsigian Negatives.  In 2000 Rick Norsigian of Fresno, California, purchased for $45, an old box containing 61 - 65 glass negatives at a garage sale.   

In 2010 the negatives were announced to be the work of Ansel Adams.  This claim was challenged by the Adams heirs, among others. The Ansel Adams heirs sued Norsigian.  

On March 15, 2011 the law suit was settled. An inquiry was then ongoing at this site, interrupted, and leaving many Open Questions which need answering.
