Abstract:

Here is an enthusiastic survey of Ansel Adams' varied career - from commercial photographer to avant-garde modernist and finally standard bearer of "pure" photography. His well-known photographs of America's national parks - featured in this volume - are remarkable for their timeless celebration of the nation's unblemished landscape. Ansel Adams was an artist and conservationist, a visionary and pragmatist. His work is a permanent record of America's wild beauty, achieved by a man whose own nature was as immutable as the earth he loved.
