In a career that spanned six decades, Ansel Adams was at once America’s foremost landscape photographer and one of its most ardent environmentalists. His work has been published in a multitude of books, posters, and calendars.
Andrea G. Stillman, who worked with Adams in the 1970s, has edited several books of his photographs and writings, including Letters and Images: 1916-1984, Our National Parks, and Ansel Adams: 400 Photographs. She lives in New York City.

In 1975, as president of the University of Arizona, he helped found the Center for Creative Photography. He lives in Tucson, Arizona.
