Synopsis

Next to Yosemite and the High Sierra, the Southwest was closest to Ansel Adams' heart. It was there, in the early 1930s, that he met photographer Paul Strand and decided to make photography his life's work. In this volume, roughly one quarter of the photographs, selected and edited by Adams' longtime editor Andrea Stillman, are little-known images of the Grand Canyon. The balance of the images portrays the variety and stark beauty of the southwestern landscape, from Texas to Death Valley in California. The pictures are complemented by an introduction by Andrea Stillman and a selection of Adams' vivid letters about the region.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

In a career that spanned over five decades, Ansel Adams was at once America's foremost landscape photographer and one of its most respected environmental leaders.

Andrea G. Stillman, who worked with Ansel Adams in the 1970s, edited many of the Adams books published since his death, most recently Ansel Adams California.

Format: Taschenbuch
The 86 black and white images in this book reflect dozens of visits by Ansel Adams to the Southwest over more than 50 years. Adams liked what he saw, and felt that "this land is offering me a tremendous opportunity; no one has really photographed it."

This volume has two weakneses. The images are often too small to accurately reproduce the detail that Adams intended us to see in the foregrounds and backgrounds, and many are over inked. Second, the introduction by William A. Turnage is not up to his usual standards. He makes a number of strange assertions such as that Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico, 1941 (poorly reproduced in this volume) is "beyond doubt, his most famous photograph." Hmmm. What do you think? In other places though, Turnage adds interesting details about Adams' introduction to the Southwest and the influence on his photography of Paul Strand.

The book contains many letters from Adams about his experiences in taking the photographs, including many near disasters with his station wagon breaking down. One of the really interesting ones is to Patsy England in 1936 in which he says that in many ways the "Carlsbad Caverns are symbolic of my life; beautiful and exquisite things that exist only in the light of the moment." That may be the finest characterization of Adams' work that I have read.

Here are my favorite images (as reproduced here) in this book:

After you have finished reading about Ansel Adams' adventures and learning in the Southwest, I urge you to take your own driving trip through this beautiful country. Be sure to visit the spots that Adams did. I also suggest that you be sure to add Sedona in Arizona, Mesa Verde, the Meteorite Crater in Arizona, Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesen West in Scottsdale, and the Navajo reservation to the areas depicted here.
See the most beautiful places you can as often as possible! The beauty will seep into your soul.

Taking a great photograph is an act of love 16. September 2011
Von T. M. Teale - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Verifizierter Kauf
. . . or so I've realized after the past three years of looking at _The Grand Canyon and the Southwest_, a collection of black & white photographs by Ansel Adams (Little, Brown and Company, 2000). Photographs such as these--from surreal canyon-scapes to a single cactus in Arizona or a little Navajo/Dineh girl--show a mastery of craft and equipment. But, it's the eye and mind of a visionary artist (Ansel) that makes these photos possible. It makes sense that someone would take a photo of a girl in Canyon de Chelly in her traditional clothing, and it was intelligent to photograph Julian Martinez at San Ildefonso Pueblo, but it takes someone like Adams to have the photo turn out with a life beyond the day it was taken seventy or eighty years ago. Each photo here is an act of meditation, a gift of stillness and quiet being. It's always a spiritual pleasure to see "Tree and Clouds" near Tucson (1944), or "White House Ruin" in Canyon de Chelly, and "Moonrise, Hernandez" (1941).

Perhaps, what puts this collect beyond the ordinary are the selected letters Ansel Adams wrote to family and friends while he was on his photography expeditions; a pleasure to read are notes and letters to his wife Virginia, to his parents, to Albert Bender, and Beaumont and Nancy Newhall. In 1936, he wrote to Patsy English, "In many ways the Carlsbad Caverns are symbolic of my life; beautiful and exquisite things that exist only in the light of the moment--the light that comes from the mind and the heart. . . . These things must be caught when they can--worked to perfection when they can" (105). There are also facsimiles of postcards and stationery, and a list of people he visited in Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico.

This volume is edited by Andrea G. Stillman, and the Introduction is written by William A. Turnage, and makes an outstanding companion to the 90-minute American Experience PBS broadcast on Ansel Adams in 2002 (for which both Stillman and Turnage were interviewed).

What a treasure of incredibly beautiful photograps. Ansel Adams was a true artist and his books should be a must read for anyone hoping or wishing to take great pictures of Nature. I went to Grand Canyon and the Southwest visiting most of the places he photographed and they look a 100 times more beautiful in these photographs than in reality, and I came back from that trip intoxica ted with so much beauty and sure that that trip was only the first of many. For the next one, this book will be a sure and indispensable companion.
