ANSEL ADAMS. The Eloquent Light. Volume 1

San Francisco: Sierra Club, 1963. First edition. Hardcover. Folio. A biography of Ansel Adams, that starts when he was a teenager, and a summer custodian, of sorts, of a small building provided by The Sierra Club. His hikes in the Nevada mountains taught a young Adams a respect for the sights he saw. Eventually as his respect, and his skill of photography grew, he authenticated the genius of nature for all to see. In the recording of this human interplay Nancy Newhall, with subtle selectivity and with a broad knowleldge of the world of photographs, and photographers, has revealed beautifully how Ansel Adams grew. In the end, it is hard to tell which shaped the other more, Ansel or the Sierra Club. What does matter is that the mutuality was important. A very goodcopy in green cloth stamped in gilt on spine and front cover, in a very good plus clipped dust jacket (though price visible below the clip). Item #13829

Price: $50.00
