Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams and the Photographers of the American West
by Eva Weber
Publisher's Description
Ansel Adams' pictures are imbued with a poetic feeling, made more haunting by the exceptional clarity of the images themselves. In the late 1800s, photographers ventured to the American West to record its majestic and pristine beauty. An attempt to preserve dramatic views of nature prompted the work of Carleton Watkins and Edward Muybridge; artists who had hone their skills by documenting the Civil War joined them, but none ever reached the height of Ansel Adams' popularity. With over 280 illustrations and a fascinating text by photographic historian Eva Weber, this work will be treasured by amateur photographers and anyone interested in the beauty of the American West.
