Some godfathers of photography, including Ansel Adams, produced images of landscapes that shaped the US’s national identity. His iconic work captured the beauty of this country one photograph at a time, particularly that of the American West.
People came to know and love the dramatic landscapes of national parks through his imagery, recognizing a form of beauty that has stood the test of time. Art historians think his work was instrumental in forging a love for the outdoors, which is still apparent today. While Adams’ photos are revered to this day, some dismiss contemporary landscape photography as a genre for amateur photographers, as hobbyists flood image-sharing platforms with predictable imagery.
