Ansel Adams

California: With Classic California Writings
by Page Stegner
Publisher's Description
With numerous authors--John Muir, Emily Post, Wallace Stegner, Clarence King, and Jack Kerouac among others--writing about California, this latest Ansel Adams title is a welcome addition to his collection. Many unpublished images are accompanied by classic photographs. 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.
