Synopses & Reviews
Renowned as America's pre-eminent black-and-white landscape photographer, Ansel Adams began to photograph in color soon after Kodachrome film was invented in the mid 1930s. He made nearly 3,500 color photographs, a small fraction of which were published for the first time in the 1993 edition of ANSEL ADAMS IN COLOR. In this newly revised and expanded edition, 20 unpublished photographs have been added. New digital scanning and printing technologies allow a more faithful representation of Adams's color photography.
A new book, Ansel Adams in Color, revised and expanded from the 1993 edition, [has] laser scans that might have met even his finicky standards. --Richard B. Woodward
Adams produced a highly accomplished if relatively small body of color work, selections of which are gathered here. These images embody the same refined detail and delicacy of light seen in Adams's black-and-white photographs.
