ANSEL ADAMS AT 100 was published in conjuction with an outstanding international exhibition that opened in August 2001 at the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco and has travelled to Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Berlin and London. This book presents a fresh look at Adams’ classic images, an unexpected and sometimes unfamiliar body of his work, offering the first serious effort to reconsider Adams’ contribution to the art of photography in half a century. A critical and interpretive essay on this master photographer by John Szarkowski speaks of the importance of Adams as a modern artist.
The book boasts extremely high production values, featuring 110 tritone images printed on a special paper, a linen cloth binding with matching slipcase and a reproduction print (suitable for framing) embossed with the AA seal and inserted in an envelope at the back of the book. Without a doubt, this is the most important and influential book yet published on Ansel Adams.
