Ansel Adams in Color
Adams began to photograph in colour in the mid-1930s. He did significant personal or 'creative' photography in colour and his distinctive visualisation of a scene and technical mastery is immediately evident in these photographs. Overall, he made nearly 3,500 colour images, but only a small fraction have ever been published. Adams thought seriously about publishing his colour images but the task was not accomplished during his lifetime. The Ansel Adams Publishing Rights Trust - with advice and counsel from John Szarkowski, former Director of Photography at New York's Museum of Modern Art; David Travis, Curator of Photographs at the Art Institute of Chicago and James Enyeart, former Director of the International Museum of Photography at George Eastman House--asked the distinguished master photographer Harry Callahan to select the best of Adams' colour work for publication in this book.
A new book, " Ansel Adams in Color, " revised and expanded from the 1993 edition, [has] laser scans that might have met even his finicky standards. -- Smithsonian "Richard B. Woodward"
In a career that spanned six decades, Ansel Adams was America's foremost landscape photographer and one of its most ardent environmentalists. Andrea Stillman worked with him in the 1970s and has edited several books of his photos and writings. John Schaefer was a student and close friend of Ansel Adams and is a Trustee of The Adams Publishing Rights Trust.
