A stunning collection of 120 visionary photographs of the American West and its wild places showcases Adams's manipulation of light and shadow to reflect his emotional response to the landscape
 

Ansel Adams's legendary photographs inspire an appreciation for natural beauty and conservation that has been communicated down the generations. His ambition was not simply to record the landscape, but to capture his emotional and spiritual response to the wild areas that he loved so deeply. The results are spectacular: an emotional charge and passion shine through the prints with an intensity that is as powerful today as it was more than 60 years ago. In 1941, Adams was commissioned by the United States Interior Department to take photographs of the National Parks to be printed as murals for the walls of the new Interior Department building. This couldn't have been closer to his heart: it combined a commercial assignment with his personal, creative work. Unfortunately, the project was curtailed with the outbreak of World War II and the mural was never produced. The 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.

List price: $50.00
Author: Ansel Adams

The great American photographer Ansel Adams is justly famous for his heroic mountain landscapes. He is also a consummate photographer of trees and forest woodland, creating stirring portraits of giant oaks in Yosemite Valley and capturing the shimmering beauty of an aspen grove in New Mexico. This book will present some fifty of Adams' finest photographs of trees - a wide range of imagery from towering redwood groves to flowering orchards; majestic pine forest to leafy deciduous woods; wood and bark details to gnarled tree stumps; close-ups of snow-laden branches to leaf patterns against the sky; and, of course, many a portrait of the mighty trees of the Sierra and the American West. Accompanying the images will be text and poetry excerpts from a variety of writers and observers, both contemporary and historic. Drawn from natural history essays, poems, journals, photographers' and critics' observations, this anthology approach will complement and expand upon the reverence and passion for the beauty of trees so apparent in Adams' photographs.

Digital Landscape Photography: In the Footsteps of Ansel Adams

Digital Landscape Photography: In the Footsteps of Ansel Adams Lowest new price: $25.00
Lowest used price: $3.38
List price: $24.95
Author: Michael Frye

Ansel Adams (1902-1984) was a pioneer of landscape photography, whose imagery-especially his iconic views of the American National Parks--is widely published and instantly recognizable. While he is undoubtedly one of the best-loved and best-known visionaries of American art, photographers also recognize him as a pioneer of technique, a theoretician, and as one of the great teachers of the craft of photography.

His zone system has been widely adapted, but Adams unique imagery also relied on his determination and application at every stage of the photographic process; he spent years in his darkroom, as well as out in the open air. For decades, this kind of attention to detail required the kind of equipment, time, and facilities that were out of the reach of most photographers--but now, in the digital age, technology has finally made his techniques accessible.

This book will show you what can be learned from Adams working process, and how these lessons can be applied today. The craft of Adams photography is discussed, and the ZONE SYSTEM is related to the digital age. Sections on light, composition, mood, and the darkroom all show what can be achieved today using and understanding his thinking. Michael Frye's own photography provides many stunning examples of the results that can be achieved and, as one of Adams' natural successors in the field, he is well placed to analyze the inspirational shots which open each chapter.
