Ansel Adams: Divine Performance

Front Cover
Yale University Press, 2002 - Photography - 196 pages
Ansel Adams's magnificent photographs of the American wilderness are recognized and admired the world over. Adams is also a major cultural figure in American history, shaping many of our current views of the natural world through his compelling and accessible images.

This work addresses this gap by taking a look beyond the photographer's reputation as a Sierra Club environmentalist and examining in depth his life as an artist and the complexities of his creative vision.
