About this Item

Oblong folio. 127, [1]pp. Original photo-illustrated dust-jacket over black and olive cloth, with silver lettering on spine and front cover. Book housed in its original paper covered slipcase. Ansel Adams (1902 - 1984) was the most honored American photographer of the twentieth century. Through his exhibitions and publication of his work, his writings, and his leadership in the Sierra Club, Adams was also a prescient and highly effective voice in the fight to preserve America's remaining wilderness. "He had a greater impact upon creative photography than any other person in this century." Images 1923-1974 is his "first very-large-format book? In full control, Ansel produced his ideal book, comprising his personal choice of pictures, state-of-the-art reproduction, graceful words and elegant design. He selected the 115 photographs that he believed best represented the range of his vision, choosing (as he always did when it was up to him) a wide spectrum of portraits, details, abstracts and occasional quirky subjects, as well as a smattering of his grand landscapes? Images was both a great aesthetic and a commercial success, elected as one of the 50 Books of the Year by the American Institute of Graphic Arts and awarded first prize at the World Book Fair in Leipzig, Germany" (Alinder, 266, 307, 388). To Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Wallace Stegner, who authored the introduction, Adams' "mind and vision, his reverence, his delicacy and strength, will have the power to move and enhance and enlarge us as long as walls exist for photographs" (Miraculous Instants, 51-2). Adams "elevated the act of photography to a religious experience" (Stepan, 96). Book with "First printing 1974" on copyright page. Some rubbing along edges of slipcase. Dust-jacket slightly age-toned and creased along edges. Slipcase in overall good-, dust-jacket in good+, binding and interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 37666
