Ansel Adams : a biography by Mary Street Alinder( Book )

15 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his own best-selling 1985 autobiography, Adams presented a life almost as neatly cropped and printed as his pictures, omitting nearly all of his personal relationships and many major emotional details. Here, Mary Street Alinder - who worked with Adams on that memoir and was his assistant in his later years - draws a much more revealing portrait. Her biography covers in depth his difficult childhood in San Francisco and the profound impact of the Yosemite Valley on the boy who would become its consummate artist, exploring the mixed consequences of that lifelong relationship. It examines Adams's connections to the photographers and painters who preceded him; the philosophic influences who were either recast or neglected in the memoir; the famous and not-so-famous figures in his circle, including Mary Austin, David Brower, Imogen Cunningham, Mabel Dodge Luhan, Dorothea Lange, Georgia O'Keeffe, John Marin, Beaumont and Nancy Newhall, Paul Strand, Alfred Stieglitz, and Edward Weston; and his marriage, extramarital love affairs, and not altogether successful fatherhood. Alinder documents the success and turmoil behind his close relationship with the Sierra Club, his professional relationships with commercial clients and dealers, and how he became photography's first superstar - and a household name. She shares her intimate knowledge of his daily routine in his last years and of how Ansel Adams became a multimillion-dollar business that flourishes even after his death. An acknowledged expert on Adams's photographs, Alinder also examines his most important images and identifies the technique and style he developed to obtain his unique vision. One chapter is given over to a complete analysis of his most famous image, Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico

Ansel Adams : a biography by Mary Street Alinder( Book )

6 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classic Ansel Adams is the only comprehensive biography of one of the greatest American photographers. Mary Street Alinder, a respected scholar, had a close connection to Adams, working with him as his chief assistant in the last five years of his life. The portrait she creates of him is intimate and affectionate; it is also clear-eyed. She takes on his difficult childhood in San Francisco, the friendships and rivalries within his circle of photographers, his leadership in America's environmental movement, his marriage, his affairs, and his not-always-successful fatherhood. Enriched by her uniquely personal understanding of Adams the man, Alinder explains the artistic philosophy that, paired with his peerless technique, produced an inimitable style. her biography, firs published in 1996, is likely to remain unrivaled. This new edition brings the original up to date, incorporating research that reveals new information and a deeper understanding of Adam's greatest photographs. It also includes thirty-two pages of reproduction of Adam's work and snapshots of the artist and his circle, many of them new to this volume
