Ansel Adams at 100

John Szarkowski, Author, Ansel Adams, Author Ansel Adams $150 (192p) ISBN 978-0-8212-2515-8
Grandly proportioned, linen-bound and graceful as the images it conveys, Ansel Adams at 100 commemorates the birth of the famous native San Franciscan photographer with 114 of Adams's rich, beloved images spanning his oeuvre, and some delightful photos of the artist. The book and accompanying centennial exhibit at San Francisco's Museum of Modern Art (Aug. 2001-Jan. 2002), curated by John Szarkowski, director of the department of photography at New York's Museum of Modern Art, reevaluate the impact of Adams's work on photography, landscapes and the audience. ""His pictures have enlarged our visceral knowledge of things that we do not understand,"" writes Szarkowski. He relates specific epiphanies that propelled Adams's evolution as an artist, such as when he shot Monolith, the Face of Half Dome, having suddenly realized that using a specific filter would ""deepen the tone of the sky almost to black"" and capture his emotional experience of the vista.
