This is a first edition of the book Camera and Lens - The Creative Approach by Ansel Adams. An American landscape photographer and environmentalist known for his black-and-white images of the American West., he helped found Group f/64, an association of photographers advocating "pure" photography which favored sharp focus and the use of the full tonal range of a photograph. He and Fred Archer developed an exacting system of image-making called the Zone System, a method of achieving a desired final print through a deeply technical understanding of how tonal range is recorded and developed during exposure, negative development, and printing. The resulting clarity and depth of such images characterized his photography.

This book is in very good condition with some foxing to the edges but no major issues. Jacket is in Fair condition with some curling and tears
