Summary
Profiles acclaimed American landscape photographer Ansel Adams, tracing his discovery of the power of photography to reveal mankind's place in the natural world. Features numerous examples of his work including aspects of the Yosemite Valley. Weaves together archival footage, photographic images, dramatic readings of the artist's own writing, and interviews with photographers, historians, curators, naturalists, as well as Adams's family, friends and colleagues, to tell the story of a man who was a visionary photographer, a pioneer in photographic technique, and an ardent crusader for the cause of environmentalism
