Portfolio Four - WHAT MAJESTIC WORD, IN MEMORY OF RUSSELL VARIAN, 1963

β€œIt is my intention to present - through the medium of photography - intuitive observations of the natural world which may have meaning to the spectators, just as they might have had meaning to him. And through them I hope that some of the quality, sensitivity and heart of Russell Varian may be revealed...to a world in need of the vast and patient benedictions of nature and the benefactions of noble men.” Ansel Adams
