Adams' work in these collections provides lovely examples of his skills not just in the way most people remember him, as a landscape photographer, but as a skilled practitioner of his art capable of providing masterpieces of portraiture and architectural photography. Pick up a copy of Ansel Adams: Knowing Where to Stand for anyone in your life who loves photographs or the outdoors, especially for those who are fans of Ansel Adams prolific work.
