In a career that spanned six decades, Ansel Adams produced a remarkable body of work that is at once an artistic tour de force and a powerful tribute to his beloved American wilderness. Adams was given his first camera, a Kodak Box Brownie, in 1916, and made his first photographs during a family vacation in Yosemite National Park. Thus began a career and a lifetime devoted to making indelible images of America's wild places, its national parks, and its great mountain ranges.

This book is the largest compilation of Adams' photographic oeuvre ever published. Organized chronologically, it presents the full range of his finest work, from early efforts in the 1920s, to his projects in the national parks in the 1940s, up through his last important photographs of the 1960s. Included are Adams' most popular images – many of them icons of twentieth-century art – as well as a number of masterly but little-known photographs.

Ansel Adams: 400 Photographs offers an unprecedented survey of his development as an artist, of the themes and subjects that animate his work, and of the evolution of a style that is uniquely that of Ansel Adams – America's best-known and best-loved photographer.

There are many ways this book could be improved - the text is weak, short and fawning. And arranging all the pics in pure chronological would be appreciated. But then again the images are so stunning that those details fall by the wayside. The majority of Ansel's iconic shots can be found here, but the real reason to get this book are the dozens of other shots that in any other photographer's book would be their icon shots. I was suprised by the range of excellent shots found here. Take a look.

Amazing collection of Ansel Adam's work. I just got this book and I know I will enjoy it for years to come. It's great to pick it up and flip through the pages of beautiful photos and just get lost in the scenery. Definitely inpsires me to go out and enjoy the natural word and attempt some photography of my own!
