Ansel Adams
Ansel Easton Adams (1902-1984) was a photographer and environmentalist revered for his black-and-white landscape photographs of the western United States, and his commitment to the conservation of those lands. He helped establish photography as an art form.

Adams took his first photographs of Yosemite Valley, California in 1916, but it was not until 1930 that he decided to make a career of photography. In the late 1920's he began work as an official photographer for the Sierra Club.

The majority of the images in this series are landscapes taken between 1941 and 1942 at Grand Canyon, Grand Teton, Mesa Verde, Rocky Mountain, Yellowstone, Carlsbad Cavern, Glacier and Zion National Parks; and Death Valley, Saguero, and Canyon de Chelly National Monuments.
