Ansel Adams' Yosemite Summary

Ansel Adams' Yosemite: The Special Edition Prints by Ansel Adams

This new book of Ansel Adams photographs, the first in five years, is a personal and powerful look at Ansel Adams' Yosemite - featuring a sequence of photographs assembled throughout Adams' lifetime that have never before been collected in book form.

The photographs of Ansel Adams are among America's greatest cultural treasures but Adams' most enduring legacy may be the work he undertook to preserve our natural wilderness. In 1958, Ansel carefully selected six photographs of Yosemite National Park to exhibit and sell in support of turning tourists into activists - to further the Park's environmental mission. Over time, he added more photographs to the collection, which numbered 30 prints at the time of his passing.

This group of photographs, the Yosemite Special Edition Prints, form the core of this essential volume. They have never before been published together and today - as America's parks are threatened as never before - these images of our majestic wilderness carry immense power and exquisite beauty. It was in Yosemite that Ansel fell in love with the landscape of the American West and his luminous images of its unique rock formations, groves, clearings, trees and more are some of the most distinctive of his career.

Carefully reproduced from Adams' original negatives according to his exacting standards, ANSEL ADAMS' YOSEMITE is a contemporary reflection of Adams' artistic and political legacy and is a seminal book on the rich history and value of environmental conservation.
