PORTFOLIOS OF ANSEL ADAMS. Introduction by John Szarkowski

(Boston: New York Graphic Society, 1977).

A FINE COPY OF THIS ANSEL ADAMS PHOTOGRAPHY. "From 1948-1976 Ansel Adams produced seven portfolios, each a limited edition of from ten to sixteen original photographic prints. This book contains the full ninety superb images...Adams thinks he has been typed as 'nature boy' too long and too unfairly; certainly his work with and for the Sierra Club, for Yosemite itself and his major fights for conservation have been spectacular, but they have pigeonholed him. He thinks it is time the public had a chance to see more of the immense scope of his work, and we think he is right." - publisher. Item #28857
