Mountain and its people
In the face of all the present turmoil and unrest and unhappiness... what can a photographer, a writer, a curator do?
...To make people aware of the eternal things, to show the relationship of man to nature, to make clear the importance of our heritage, is a task that no one should consider insignificant... These are days when eloquent statements are needed.
- letter from Beaumont Newhall to Ansel Adams, May 3, 1954
