Ansel Adams

The Portfolios of Ansel Adams
by John Szarkowski
Publisher's Description
From 1948 to 1976 Ansel Adams produced seven portfolios, each a limited edition of ten to fifteen signed photographic prints. This book reproduces all ninety of these superb images, including many of Adams' most famous monumental landscape photographs and some remarkable, less familiar portraits and architectural studies.

The Portfolios of Ansel Adams was first published in 1977. In 1981 it was decided to take advantage of new printing technology and also to have the book redesigned. In this new printing, the typography from the introductory texts of the original portfolios was faithfully reproduced. In addition, new laser-scanned separations were made of all the images to guarantee the best possible reproduction of the photographs.

In his eloquent introduction, John Szarkowski observes that 'of all Adams' publications, his portfolios most clearly represent his personal view of the meaning of his work.'
