Ansel Adams in the National Parks

Photographs from America's Wild Places
By Photographs by Ansel Adams, Edited by Andrea G. Stillman (Electronic Book, 2012)
For many Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, and other iconic natural areas exist in the mind's eye as Ansel Adams photographs. A dedicated environmentalist as well as renowned artist, Adams was one of the twentieth century's most ardent champions of the parks system. Through his photographs, essays, and letter-writing campaigns, he helped create new parks and better protect existing parks. He photographed in more than 40 national parks over five decades--including Shenandoah, the Great Smoky Mountains, and Acadia in the East--and his work in the California High Sierra resulted in some of the most indelible images of the natural world ever made with a camera.

Fifty of the images in this volume have not been published in any authorized Ansel Adams book previously. All of the photos in this digital edition are optimized for the iPad's Retina display, providing arguably the best possible representation of Ansel Adam's photographs outside of viewing original prints.
