Few American artists have enjoyed more widespread popularity while alive than Ansel Adams. A visionary photographer, pioneer in technique, and environmental crusader, Adams took part in a revolution in photography, and in the ways he saw "the continuous beauty of the things that are." Ric Burns' film biography of Adams is an intimate portrait of a man for whom life and art were inextricably connected with photography and wilderness.

See america thru the eyes of Ansel Adams

By Mackie

from Burlington, Ontario, Canada

Comments about PBS American Experience: Ansel Adams DVD:

Brilliant film about the life of the great Ansel Adams. We're taken down the same path as Adams took to reveal the hidden natural beauty of the United States during the early days. The film also reveals the hardships faced without all the modern electronic devices we have access to today. Adams experimented with his slides and could manually improve upon them. The America that was can be found through Adams' photographs, never lost to the ages. Totally enjoyable as well as informative.

Comments about PBS American Experience: Ansel Adams DVD:

This video on Ansel Adams was everything I hoped for and much more. From start to finish it covered everything about his life and his photography. He truly was the greatest photographer of the last century.
