Perhaps the most famous of all American photographers, Ansel Adams won fame for his sharp and poetic images of the western landscape. View a selection of his finest photographs, and enjoy an insightful text that captures the man as both an artist and a conservationist. Although Adams was a master of photographic technology, what makes his bold and dynamic pictures so powerful is his passion for nature and the Western panoramas. In elegant, subtle black-and-white he captured the grace and simplicity of pueblo life; the overwhelming magnificence of the Grand Tetons; the incomparable beauty of Yellowstone Park, where Adams once worked as a custodian for the Sierra Club; the remarkable, almost sculptural plants in Saguaro National Monument; and the awe-inspiring achievement that was Boulder Dam. A beautiful volume to treasure forever.

Right from day one - Ansel Adams' b&w images had become admired icons of the rugged North American West.

Born in San Francisco, California (1902) - Ansel Adams was, without question, the most honoured American photographer of the 20th century. He was also a very concerned and out-spoken environmentalist, as well.

Beginning back in the mid-1920s - Adams' career in photography had steadily endured for 50 years. He had a very keen eye for his subject and his camera technique was as unique as one's fingerprints.

*Note* - In 1984 - Ansel Adams (82 at the time) died of cardiovascular disease.
