POLAROID LAND PHOTOGRAPHY. With the Collaboration of Robert Baker

(Boston: New York Graphic Society, 1978).

FIRST EDITION, REVISED OF THIS IMPORTANT WORK BY ANSEL ADAMS. In 1963 Ansel Adams wrote "It is unfortunate that so many photographers have thought of the Land camera as a 'toy', a casual device for 'fun' pictures, or, at best, a gadget to make record pictures!...The process has revolutionized the art and craft of photography--and is still barely across the threshold of development." In the book, the author emphasizes the role of careful craftsmanship, whether the purpose of the image is creative or functional. Properly used, Adams believes, Polaroid images may possess beautiful tonal qualities not possible with other processes. Item #30041
