Adams rose to prominence as a photographer of the American West, particularly of California’s Yosemite National Park. As an environmental activist, he used his work to promote conservation of wilderness areas.

Adam’s iconic black-and-white images helped to elevate photography to a fine art, with his photos of Glacier National Park, Old Faithful Geyser and the High Sierra.
