Ansel Adams: The Grand Canyon and the Southwest
Honoring Grand Canyon National Park on its centennial, The Grand Canyon and the Southwest elegantly portrays the drama and the beauty of the Canyon and the American Southwest. "It is all very beautiful and magical here--a quality which cannot be described. You have to live it and breathe it, let the sun bake it into you. The skies and the land are so enormous, and the detail so precise and exquisite..." - Ansel AdamsNext to Yosemite and the High Sierra, the Southwest was closest to Ansel Adams' heart. It was there, in the early 1930s, that he was inspired to make photography his life's work. He would return to the region again and again. In his words, "wherever one goes in the Southwest one encounters magic, strength, and beauty."Today, the Grand Canyon is one of America's most popular national parks, hosting more than six million visitors each year. This special edition paperback reproduces Ansel Adams' exquisite photographs of the Canyon alongside iconic images of the Southwest, spanning Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah. Edited by Andrea G. Stillman with an introduction by William A. Turnage, this collection of seventy dutotone photographs is complemented by Adams' vivid writings about his travels in the region.
Why we partner with Amazon.com for Calendars and Books
At The Ansel Adams Gallery, we care a great deal about our customers and the environment. In order to give our customers the best prices available on merchandise and to help conserve our natural resources consumed by transportation and packaging, we are happy to partner with amazon.com to fulfill some of the products ordered from our website. For instance, many of our books and calendars are obtained from a publisher in New York. Shipping an item from New York to Yosemite National Park, only to re-package it and ship it to another destination, perhaps right back to the East Coast, is wasteful and unnecessary. By partnering with Amazon, we utilize their fulfillment system, which enables us to deliver your purchase in the most efficient means possible and provide you with the best price available.
