Synopsis:

Adams spent his life in California & his monumental photographs of the state's most striking natural wonders - Yosemite & the Sierra Nevada - won him worldwide renown.

This volume collects the full range of his California images for the first time, focusing largely on his lesser-known work outside the Sierra. The 70 beautifully reproduced photos capture some of California's most striking and exemplary vistas - San Francisco, the Golden Gate, Point Reyes, the North Coast, redwood forests, Mount Lassen, orchards in Santa Clara, Lake Tahoe, lettuce fields in the Salina Valley & the gold country, among many others. It is a personal & intimate view, full of Adams' peerless landscapes but interspersed with glimpses of the state's distinctive architecture & scattered portraits of its luminaries.

Accompanying these wonderful photographs are evocative poems, essays & passages about California from a wide range of notable writers, inc. Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, John Muir, Robinson Jeffers, John Steinbeck, John McPhee, Wallace Stegner & Joan Didion.


Review:
Ansel Adams may be one of the most famous nature photographers ever, but his often- overlooked portraits of people and images of buildings and manmade landscapes are as stirring and beautiful as his inimitable wilderness photographs. This is a manageably sized volume that collects images of the state's beaches, mountains, parks, architecture and people, as well as writing--poems, essays, fiction--by authors such as John Steinbeck, Jack Kerouac, Robert Louis Stevenson, Walt Whitman and Joan Didion. The combination of words and images is a visual and literary homage to California, a place that was home to and the source of inspiration for the great photographer.

Review

Review:
* A magnificent celebration of California by its greatest photographer - including many rarely seen images and a selection of fascinating writings about the state by classic and contemporary authors.
