Ansel Adams: 400 Photographs presents the full spectrum Adams' greatest work in a single volume for the first time, offering an entirely different perspective on his monumental career.
The photographs are arranged chronologically into five major periods in order to convey Adams' development as an artist-from his first photographs made in Yosemite and the High Sierra in 1916 to his work in the National Parks in the 1940s up to his last important photographs from the 1960s. An introduction and brief essays on selected images provide information about Adams' life, document the evolution of his technique, and give voice to his artistic vision.
Few artists of any era can claim to have produced four hundred images of lasting beauty and significance. It is a testament to Adams' vision and a lifetime of hard work that a book of this scale can be justified. Ansel Adams: 400 Photographs is a must-have reference and gift book for anyone who appreciates photography and the allure of the natural world.
