Description

Perhaps the most famous of all American photographers, Ansel Adams won fame for his sharp and poetic images of the western landscape. View a selection of his finest photographs, and enjoy an insightful text that captures the man as both an artist and a conservationist. Although Adams was a master of photographic technology, what makes his bold and dynamic pictures so powerful is his passion for nature and the Western panoramas. In elegant, subtle black-and-white he captured the grace and simplicity of pueblo life; the overwhelming magnificence of the Grand Tetons; the incomparable beauty of Yellowstone Park, where Adams once worked as a custodian for the Sierra Club; the remarkable, almost sculptural plants in Saguaro National Monument; and the awe-inspiring achievement that was Boulder Dam. A beautiful volume to treasure forever.show more
