"...wherever one goes in the Southwest," Ansel Adams wrote, "one encounters magic, strength, and beauty." Photographs of the Southwest brings together some of Adams' most striking images, made from 1928 to 1968 in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Texas. The book is a powerful and evocative record of the unique landscape of the Southwest, as well as its people and its distinctive architecture.
Among the images are photographs of the Mesa Verde, Death Valley, Joshua Tree, and Sunset Crater National Monuments; the Grand Canyon, Carlsbad Caverns, and Zion National Parks; and such varied subjects as Navajo Mountain, Hopi Buttes, and Taos Pueblo. In addition to some of Adams' most famous images, a surprising number of dramatic, but lesser-known photographs, are included in this memorable portrait.
