5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this book so much I didn't want to finish it!, 13 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Looking at Ansel Adams: The Photographs and the Man (Hardcover)
I really like Ansel Adams and black and white photographic images. That said, it would seem I am in my element with this book... and I am.

I have read Ansel Adams biography. Its big but whlst Ansel was an excellent photographer he was not so hot on his prose and at times it was so easy to get bogged down in that tome. this book is smaller, well presented and written and compiled by a female assistant and it rocks (sic)

The images are beautiful and it covers not just Ansel's photography but his life and work for his own pleasure and government. I have read a lot of book recently about American photographers and like French painters they grouped together on projects and were friend. Having just finished a book on Dorathea Lange she states that she worked with Ansel and they were friends. This book goes into a little more detail and also has a fair bit about Ansel's relationship with Edward weston an his muse.

excellent stuff. Even if you never read it, the images of not just Ansel adam's work but of Lange and Weston also are eye catching.
