Product description

In his early years in Yosemite, Adams formed the habit of writing letters at every opportunity. His correspondence, therefore, provides virtually the full record of his life. Throughout the years, wherever he went, from Southwest to Maine to Alaska, he wrote literally thousands of letters and postcards. Among the family, friends, fellow photographers, environmentalists and politicians with whom he corresponded rank such eminent names as Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, Jimmy Carter, Garry Trudeau and Edward Weston. This volume of letters reveals the growth of the artist and the man, as well as the development of the art of photography.
