About the Author

Ansel Adams (1902-1984) was the most honored American photographer of the twentieth century. Through the exhibition and publication of his work, his writings, and his leadership in the Sierra Club, Adams was also a prescient and highly effective voice in the fight to preserve America's remaining wilderness. Pete Souza was the Chief Official White House Photographer for President Obama and the Director of the White House Photo Office. His books include the New York Times bestsellers Obama: An Intimate Portrait, Shade, and The Rise of Barack Obama. Alan Ross is an internationally acclaimed artist, master printer, and photographic educator, whose knowledge of Ansel Adams' approach and technique is unparalleled. From 1974 to 1979, he worked side-by-side with Adams as his photographic assistant. In 1975, Adams personally appointed Ross to be the exclusive printer of the Yosemite Special Edition negatives.

Reviews

Adams' photographs "call attention to the passage of time and changing nature of the landscape, especially in the face of global warming... Adams' photographs spread his belief in the transformative power of national parks to a wide audience. The pioneer defined the genre and kickstarted environmental activism through art."--Fortune
"Iconic and still breathtaking... Adams remains extravagantly popular."--The New York Times, January 2019
"Gorgeous... [These] vistas reveal Adams' ability to capture the wildness in nature and the book tells of his environmental activism."--Detroit Free Press
