In black and white and with minimalist compositions, Ansel Adams let the West speak eloquently for itself. In Yosemite, the Grand Tetons, and Monument Valley, Adams created a body of photography that immortalized and, in many cases, galvanized the preservation of American landscapes. Before he died in 1984, he identified his best 75 photographs.
