Fore more than sixty years, since making his photographs of Yosemite Valley, Ansel Adams has sought to capture 'the instant of revelation - of timelessness' The landscapes for which he is best known are as eloquent in their use of texture, form and light as nature itself. His world is one of forests and of rivers running like quicksilver, of distant waterfalls and of rocky domes and spires that rise through mist or swirling snows or bask in brilliant light. In this solitary world, every element of nature is rendered with intense clarity.
'The Eloquent Light', originally published by The Sierra Club in 1963, traces Adam's life and career from 1902 and 1938, his formative years. Nancy Newhall drew on the letters and words of Adams, his family, and his colleagues to create this book. Newhall herself was a close friend who, as she put it, ' in the course of 20 ears, crawled under Adams's focusing cloth almost a thousand times.' Her close association with Adams makes her book more than just a biography - it is a record of a new beginning in American photography.
