Holiday Gift Guide 2010: Ansel Adams in the National Parks Review and Giveaway (Ends 12/29) CLOSED

Wednesday, December 15, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
With more than two hundred photographs - many rarely seen and some never before published - this is the most comprehensive collection of Ansel Adams' photographs of America's national parks and wilderness areas. For many people, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, and other iconic American wildlands exist in the mind's eye as Ansel Adams photographs. The legendary photographer explored more than forty national parks in his lifetime, producing some of the most indelible images of the natural world ever made. One of the twentieth century's most ardent champions of the park and wilderness systems, Adams also helped preserve additional natural areas and protect existing ones through his photographs, essays, and letter-writing campaigns.

Edited and with commentary by Andrea G. Stillman, the foremost expert on Adams' work, this landmark publication includes quotations by Adams on the making of numerous photographs and essays by Wallace Stegner, William A. Turnage of The Ansel Adams Trust, and journalist and critic Richard B. Woodward. This is a must-own for Ansel Adams fans and all those who, like Adams, treasure America's wilderness.

My Review
Photography is a passion for me, and this remarkable collection of Ansel Adams' work took my breath away. I love photos in color but these pictures are amazing in black and white. There are over 225 photographs, including 50 that had not been published before. Each and every shot is perfect and captures the beauty, serenity and timelessness of nature. To see these views through the lens of Ansel Adams is a real treat. This outstanding selection of his photographs would make a cherished addition to your home library and a wonderful gift for anyone who enjoys photography or appreciates the splendor of America's national parks.

    My husband would LOVE this book! He's never been to any of the parks out West, but I have. I'd love to take him to Yellowstone... maybe we'll get out there one day!
