About the Author:

In a career that spanned over five decades, Ansel Adams was at once America's foremost landscape photographer and one of its most ardent environmentalists. A passionate appreciation of natural beauty became an integral part of his portfolio. A master photographer, teacher, and environmentalist, the profound impact of his work continues to expand as each generation discovers the luminous beauty of his art.

From Library Journal:

An impressive addition to Adams's work, this book clarifies the emotional and conceptual framework of many of his most familiar and stunning photographs by offering with them letters to and from family and friends. Adams is openly loving and loyal in many letters, receiving in return deep respect and affection as both an artist and a warm, likable man. Though he often states that his images are his sole means of self-expression, some of his letters contain lucid critiques of his work and others' that shall prove useful to scholars. Perhaps the most important correspondence is with Stieglitz and Weston, revealing shared enthusiasm for photography as art. For most libraries. David Bryant, Belleville P.L., N.J.
