Authors:
Ansel Adams

The first book of Ansel Adam's early photographs of the Canadian Rockies.'These mountains are breathtaking - utterly different than anything we have seen. The peaks and forest and 'tone' fulfill almost every ideal I have had of what 'my' mountains could be. . . These are the great mountains we dream about.'- Ansel Adams to his wife Virginia, 1928The Sierra Club's twenty-ninth annual outing or 'High Trip' was Ansel Adams's first as official photographer. It was during this expedition to the Canadian Rockies in 1928 that Ansel began to find his voice as a photographer. In ANSEL ADAMS IN THE CANADIAN ROCKIES, we discover images of celebrated natural sites including Mount Robson, Amethyst Lake, Drawbridge Peak, and Bennington Glacier that foreshadow the majestic mountain vistas for which Adams would become renowned. A fine chronicle of one of Ansel Adams's earliest major photographic expeditions, and the only one he ever made outside of the United States, this book also serves as a record of Ansel's emerging style during these crucial years in his artistic development.

Ansel Adams In Color

Adams began to photograph in colour in the mid-1930s. He did significant personal or 'creative' photography in colour and his distinctive visualisation of a scene and technical mastery is immediately evident in these photographs. Overall, he made nearly 3,500 colour images, but only a small fraction have ever been published. Adams thought seriously about publishing his colour images but the task was not accomplished during his lifetime. The Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust - with advice and counsel from John Szarkowski, former Director of Photography at New York's Museum of Modern Art; David Travis, Curator of Photographs at the Art Institute of Chicago and James Enyeart, former Director of the International Museum of Photography at George Eastman House--asked the distinguished master photographer Harry Callahan to select the best of Adams' colour work for publication in this book.

ANSEL ADAMS' 400 PHOTOGRAPHS is intended as a must-have gift and reference book for anyone who appreciates photography and the allure of the natural world.

It is a testament to Ansel's vision and his prodigious output that a book of this scale can be justified, and it is a point of pride for Little, Brown to publish a comprehensive overview of the work of Ansel Adams in a single well-packaged volume.

The Portfolios Of Ansel Adams

Ansel Adams
Authors:
Ansel Adams

From 1948 - 1976 Ansel Adams produced seven portfolios, each a limited edition of 10-15 signed photographic prints. This book reproduces all 90 of these superb images, including many of Adams' most famous monumental landscape photographs and some remarkable, less familiar portraits and architecture studies. The book was first published in 1977 and in 1981 it was decided to take advantage of new printing technology to have the book re-designed. In this new printing the typography from the introductory texts of the original portfolios was reproduced. In addition, new laser-scanned separations were made of all the images to guarantee the best possible reproductions of the photographs.In his eloquent introduction, John Szarkowski observes that 'of all Adams' publications, his portfolios most clearly represent his personal view of the meaning of his work.
