Immediately recognizable photographs like Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico, and Mount McKinley and Wonder Lake are turned on their axes and seen from a new angle, along with ancillary photographs, alternative versions, and letters and postcards that relate to these beloved icons. Less familiar but equally important photographs provide unexpected insight into Ansel's creative and personal life. For anyone with a love of the American wilderness and an interest in the life and work of the country's most revered landscape photographer and environmental advocate, Looking At Ansel Adams is an essential and deeply satisfying book."@en ;
