Next to Yosemite and the High Sierra, the Southwest was closest to Ansel Adams's heart, and in the early 1930s, it inspired him to make photography his life's work. "Wherever one goes in the Southwest one encounters magic, strength, and beauty," he observed, and his majestic photographs of the Grand Canyon collected here prove his point admirably. Complemented by Adams's vivid writings about his travels in the region, this collection of 70 duotone photographs includes the haunting Moonrise Over Hernandez, New Mexico; the dignified portrait Spanish-American Woman; the austere, beautiful Pool and Building, Acoma Pueblo; and a snapshot of Georgia O'Keeffe sketching on a cliff's edge.
