Ansel Adams : 400 Photographs, Retrospective 2007
Updated: Nov 21
Photographer and American environmentalist, Ansel Adams (1902-1984), is one of the pioneers of 20th-century black and white photography. Known for his remarkable and extensive work on American national parks, notably Yosemite National Park, Ansel Adams is also the founder of the f/64 Group, which played a crucial role in introducing photography to the Museum of Modern Art.
Working with a 4x5 large format camera, Ansel Adams was able to reveal the beauty and mystery of these national parks through his distinctive prints.
Ansel Adams - 400 Photographs offers a comprehensive retrospective of his work through 400 photographs handpicked by the author. Beautifully reproduced and presented in this landscape-format book, these famous photographs will hold a special place in the library of all aficionados of large format prints.
The photographs are presented chronologically, spanning the five major periods of Ansel Adams' life, from his early images of Yosemite National Park in 1916 to his works of the 1960s. The introduction and the essay accompanying a selection of these prints provide valuable insights into the life of the great photographer as well as his techniques.
Few artists of the 20th century can boast of having created over 400 remarkable prints on a single subject.
This self-published book pays tribute to the talent of this humble and understated artist. A must-have for any enthusiast of black and white photography and its history.
