Ansel Adams’s work was part of an extraordinary revolution in photography that sought to capture what he called “the continuous beauty of things that are”: the landscape of North America. More than any other artist of the twentieth century, Adams helped transform the meaning of wilderness in America; his greatest images of the American West changed forever what Americans thought about their own land.
