In this bestselling autobiography, completed shortly before his death in 1984, Ansel Adams looks back at his legendary six-decade career as a conservationist, teacher, musician, and, above all, photographer. Written with characteristic warmth, vigor, and wit, this fascinating account brings to life the infectious enthusiasms, fervent battles, and bountiful friendships of a truly American original.
"An evocative celebration of the life, career, friendships, concerns, and vision of an ardent environmentalist and pioneering artist who captured the rich natural beauty of America through the lens of his camera."—New York Times
"A warm, discursive, and salty document"—New Yorker
This autobiography provides an intimate look into the life of one of the greatest photographers of all time.
It inspired me to look at my own photography in new ways. The stories behind the pictures make them more enjoyable.
