Ansel Adams - The National Park Service Photographs - Book Review

(If you can't see the video please click here.)

Trying to use words to describe Ansel Adams photos is a bit of a lost cause. You've simply got to look at the images and take in the sumptuous subjects and excellent composition.

During 1941 Adams was working for the US Department of the Interior taking photographs that were to be used to create grand mosaics for civic buildings. The project was cancelled when WWII reared its ugly head, but we were left with these beautiful images.

Taking in the Tetons, The Grand Canyon, Yosemite and many other iconic locations, "The National Park Photographs" is a treasure of a book, and should be enjoyed and studied by any student of black and white landscape photography.

Thanks, Rob.
