    Re: Review of new Ansel Adams book!

    Oh hey,

    I stopped getting e-mails from this thread, thought it was dormant!

    The first is "Was Ansel A Landsape Photographer?" at...

    Indeed, it was the Lane show that got her interested in Ansel's early work as a PhD topic. She talks about that in her intro to the book.

    She did her PhD dissertation on Ansel's early work--I think this book is the culmination of all of that. Bad timing with the virus, alas.

    The book is good. If you haven't seen Parmelian Prints or the Sierra Club album before that alone is probably worth the $35.
