Ansel was the grandfather of Dorothea, a child who died of leukemia before the Great War. Dorothea had dreams of visiting West Virginia and wrote out a list of places she wanted to see. Determined to keep his word, Ansel went to Appalachia and set out to take pictures of those places with his camera in memory of Dorothea, but died before the list could be completed.
