About this book

In this exquisitely photographed and affordable keepsake book, esteemed National Geographic photographer Peter Essick pays tribute to Ansel Adams and the craggy California Sierra Nevada wilderness area named in his honour.

The stunning images in The Ansel Adams Wilderness reinterpret this powerful landscape through the modern lens of digital photography. Interspersed with illuminating words from prominent naturalists and conservationists, these photographs offer a new view of one of the country's most timeless and striking national parks. Elegant and evocative, this modern tribute to one of photography's greatest masters will be treasured by camera buffs and nature lovers alike.
