My five year old daughter has always had a strong love of books. We have that in common, her and I. So when she recently started to take an interest in my work, we decided to look into some age appropriate books on the subject. From fiction, to biographies and fun instructional texts, here are some of our favorites photography related books.
Antsy Ansel: Ansel Adams, A Life In Nature
You may be familiar with Adams's iconic black-and-white nature photographs. But do you know about the artist who created these images? As a child, Ansel Adams just couldn't sit still. He felt trapped indoors and never walked anywhere--he ran. Even when he sat, his feet danced. But in nature, Ansel felt right at home. He fell in love with the gusting gales of the Golden Gate, the quiet whisper of Lobos Creek, the icy white of Yosemite Valley, and countless other remarkable natural sights. Antsy Ansel chronicles a restless boy's path to becoming an iconic nature photographer.
If you're local to Lehigh Valley, PA, we recommend picking these up from our favorite independent book store, Let's Play Books in Emmaus (if you're not local, they ship!) or, your favorite indie book store in your home town. Happy reading!
