A stunning collection of 120 visionary photographs by the greatest landscape phtographer of the 20th century.
Ansel Adams discovered his life-long love of photography and wild spaces on his first visit to Yosemite National Park at the age of 14 years. That summer was the start of Adam's relationship with photography and the great outdoors, and for the next 25 years or so he could be seen scrambling up rock faces, hiking in National Parks lugging his large view camera, tripod, and a heavy back pack of equipment.
Tha majority of pictures in this book are from the National Parks Mural Project, but also include work from other projects. The Kings Canyon photographs, taken in 1936, were successfully used to lobby for Kings Canyon to be designated a National Park. There is an exuberant photograph of an apple tree in snow taken at Yosemite, as well as the images taken for a documentary project during the war when Japanese Americans were interned at the Manzanar Relocation Center.
