In a career that spanned over five decades, Adams was at once America's foremost landscape photographer and one of its most ardent environmentalists. A master photographer, teacher and naturalist, the profound impact of his work continues to expand as each generation discovers the magnificent, luminous beauty of his art.
John Szarkowski, director of the Department of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art for twenty-six years until his retirement in 1991, is the author of such classic works as Looking at Photographers, The Photographer's Eye, and Photography Until Now. He was the curator of the Ansel Adams exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in 1979.
