YA-- A major feature of this collection of over 30 of the artist's landscape photographs is Wrigley's introduction. In it, he draws parallels between the development of his subject's artistry and that of American photography during the 60 years he worked, beginning in the 1920s when this country became more conscious of the need to preserve the pristine wilderness. Adams quickly realized the potential power of the lens as an instrument of environmental advocacy, and Wright's essay enables readers to understand the reformatory intent of the photographer's crisp, stern black-and-white images and places him in the context of the mood of the time. Most of the photographs present his view of the American West; six of them study the Navajo as they fit into the Southwestern shadows and light patterns for which he has been long acclaimed.
