ANSEL ADAMS: A BIOGRAPHY. Revised and updated edition. Mary Street Alinder. Bloomsbury USA, Bloomsbury Publishing, New York, 2014. Original edition published 1996 {Worldwide 96810}. 496 pp. with 46 ills. 24 x 16 cm. ISBN 9781620408001 In English.
Publisher's description: First published in 1996, Mary Street Alinder's biography of Ansel Adams remains the only full biography of one of the greatest American photographers. Alinder is a respected scholar, and also had a close connection to Adams, serving 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, she explains the artistic philosophy that, paired with his peerless technique, produced an inimitable style. Her biography is likely to remain unrivaled. This new edition will bring the classic up to date and includes research that reveals new information and a deeper understanding of his greatest photographs. It will also include thirty-two pages of reproductions of Adams's work and snapshots of the artist and close friends.
