9780821223697: California: With Classic California Writings

A celebration of California by its most renowned photographer, this book features many rarely seen images and an intriguing selection of writings about the state by classic and contemporary authors. This volume collects for the first time a full range of Adams' California images. Sixty-five beautifully reproduced photographs capture some of California's most inimitable vistas - San Francisco, the Golden Gate, Point Reyes, the North Coast, redwood forests, Mt. Lassen, orchards in Santa Clara, Lake Tahoe, lettuce fields in the Salinas Valley, and the gold country, among many others. Accompanying these beautiful photographs are evocative poems, essays, and passages about California by a wide range of notable writers, including Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, John Muir, Robinson Jeffers, John Steinbeck, John McPhee, Wallace Stegner, and Joan Didion.

Review:

Ansel Adams may be one of the most famous nature photographers ever, but his often-overlooked portraits of people and images of buildings and manmade landscapes are as stirring and beautiful as his inimitable wilderness photographs. This is a manageably sized volume that collects images of the state's beaches, mountains, parks, architecture, and people, as well as writing--poems, essays, fiction--by authors such as John Steinbeck, Jack Kerouac, Robert Louis Stevenson, Walt Whitman, and Joan Didion. The combination of words and images is a visual and literary homage to California, a place that was home to and the source of inspiration for the great photographer.

About the Author:

In a career that spanned over six decades, Ansel Adams (1902-1984) was at once America's foremost landscape photographer and one of its most ardent environmentalists. A master photographer, teacher and naturalist, the profound impact of his work continues to expand as each generation discovers the magnificent, luminous beauty of his art.
Novelist and journalist Page Stegner is the author of six books, including Islands of the West: From Baja to vancouver and American Places, co-authored with his father, Wallace Stegner, and Eliot Porter.

Book Description Ansel Adams May 1997, 1997. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Ansel Adams lived his entire life in California, and his monumental photographs of the state's most striking natural wonders -- Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada -- won him worldwide renown. But throughout his career, from the 1920s to the 1980s, Adams also photographed many other areas of the Golden State -- from the Sonoma Valley to Big Sur to Death Valley. This volume collects the full range of Adams' California images for the first time, focusing largely an his lesser-known work outside the Sierra. The seventy beautifully reproduced duotone photographs capture some of California's most striking and exemplary vistas -- San Francisco, the Golden Gate, Point Reyes, the North Coast, redwood forests, Mount Lassen, orchards in Santa Clara, Lake Tahoe, lettuce fields in the Salinas Valley, and the gold country, among many others. It is a personal and intimate view, full of Adams' peerless landscapes but interspersed with glimpses of the state's distinctive architecture and scattered portraits of its luminaries. Accompanying these wonderful photographs are evocative poems, essays, and passages about California by a wide range of notable writers, including Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, John Muir, Robinson Jeffers, John Steinbeck, John McPhee, Wallace Stegner, and Joan Didion.
