Disappointing Camera Work

"We are not allowed to see the photographs as Adams shot them. What we see instead are moving fragments as we are constantly subjected to panning, tilting and zooming in and out. We never see the photographs in total and get to watch them as Adams cropped them. It is like going through a photographic exhibition on a roller coaster."

"I recently saw an exhibit of Adams' work and wanted to learn more about him. Saw this older film (from my public library) and was blown away. Beautifully done and extremely moving. Seeing his work on the screen is no substitute for seeing the real thing in a museum or gallery. but it is a wonderful additional piece to fill in a complete portrait of his life and work. Every American should see this film and (hopefully) see his work in person."
