Sobre l'autor

Ansel Easton Adams born on February 20, 1902 in San Francisco, California. In 1915 his father removed him from school and he was home-schooled in Greek, the English classics, algebra, and the nature that surrounded their home. His father also bought him a season pass to the Panama-Pacific mostra'n més Exposition, which he visited nearly every day. In 1916 the Adams family visited Yosemite National Park, where Adams was given his first camera. At this point in his life, Adams had planned to become a concert pianist, but he soon discovers the joys of photography. Adams' first acknowledged picture appears in 1927. In 1932, he formed the f/64 group with Edward Veston, with whom he goes on to teach his first workshop with at Yosemite, called the U. S. Camera Photogrpahic Forum. Adams began serving on the Board of the Sierra Club in 1932, a position he held until 1971. In March of 1933, Adams met Alfred Stieglitz, owner of An American Place photo gallery. Stieglitz was so impressed with Adams work that he held an exhibition for Adams in 1936. In 1943, Adams sought to contribute to the war effort by recording the lives of the American-born citizens of Japanese descent who were interned in the Manzanar War Relocation Camp. In 1949 Adams tested Polaroid cameras for Edwin Land, In 1953, Adams collaborated with Dorothea Lange on a Life commission for a photo essay on the Mormons in Utah. In 1967, he was instrumental in the foundation of the Friends of Photography. Adams was a commercial photographer for 30 years, within which he won three Guggenheim grants to photograph the national parks. In 1980, The Ansel Adams Conservation Award was established by the Wilderness Club, and Adams named as the first recipient. Ansel Adams died April 22 of heart failure aggravated by cancer. (Bowker Author Biography) In a career that spanned more than five decades, Ansel Adams was at once America's foremost landscape photographer & one of its most ardent environmentalists.

This picture book was created by Ansel Adams, through a series of photographs taken from the Manzanar Relocation Center in 1943-44. According to Ansel Adams, "through the pictures the reader will be introduced to perhaps twenty individuals . . . loyal American citizens who are anxious to get back into the stream of life and contribute to our victory." The pictures feature individuals who are American citizens during the internment process. It was published in 1944. This book is an excellent resource to find candid pictures of everyday life at Manzanar during WWII.… (més)

Although it is a beautiful image, it is too hard as a puzzle. The pieces are not differentiated enough to tell when they are assembled correctly, especially since the image is monochromatic with large swatchs of unchanging shade.
*********
I agree that the image is beautiful. It would be worth working if the puzzle shapes / cut were done well. The shapes were so similar that it is almost impossible to be sure of the correct connection in places—until or unless you suffer through checking all the pieces—and we did not. Therefore, I do not recommended getting any puzzles from Mattel. Level: Difficult.

Beautiful photography. The book description is in error. It says there are 28 pages, but actually the introductory text is 28 pages. Following are about 100 pages of photos.
