224 pp. 14.25 x 1.25 x 17.25 inches. 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.
