176 pages




Published to accompany an exhibition at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts in 2005, this beautifully illustrated, oversized (11.25x10") catalogue is devoted to three long essays about Adams which discuss his lifelong promotion of American photography, the importance to him of the American Southwest, and the evolution of the Adams collection of William and Saundra Lane. The essays are notable for presenting an in-depth historical discussion of these aspects of Adams, usefully supplementing the wealth of material published on America's famous photographer. The authors are curators in the BMFA's department of prints, drawings, and photographs.
