ANSEL ADAMS (1902-1984) was born in San Francisco, California. He became one of the most famous photographers in United States history, mostly taking high-resolution landscape photographs. His subject matter was predominantly the American West. With photographers Willard Van Dyke and Edward Weston, Adams formed a group of photographers called Group f/64. All primary members were based out of San Francisco and framed their productions from a Western America perspective. He published numerous photographic books, including Parmelian Prints of the High Sierras (1927), The Land of Little Rain (1950), and Yosemite Valley (1967). One notable publication that did not depict nature scenes is Born Free and Equal (1944), a book that featured images from the Japanese American Internment camp at the Manzanar War Relocation Center. Although he was criticized for this publication due to its perceived anti-patriotic sentiment, the book demonstrates Adams' dedication to social reform. In 1946, Adams earned one of his three Guggenheim fellowships and used it to photograph every National Park in the United States. He was the first photographer to accomplish this feat. His black and white photographs can still be seen in various printed materials today; they remind viewers of the beauty of nature and are typically used to promote environmentalism. NICK DEAN worked for Polaroid. In 1949, Adams had become a consultant for the newly formed company. File holes at left. Usual fold creases. Lightly toned and creased at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
