What a tease. It is not yet available from the British iTunes store. Sadly you cannot purchase content from the US store from here.

It has always struck me strange when a gallery or artist offers "sale" prices; after all, prices for art, (including photographic art prints), unless established at auctions, are basically arbitrary, "what the traffic will bear," as it were.

That said, they look, at least on screen, to be very nice prints.

"a forty image slide show"

40 Photographs? Coincidence?

Hmzzzzz, a picture of mine hang at a show in Amsterdam next to a print of "Moonrise over Hernadez".....back in 1986.....at the Canon Foto Galerie.....humbling experience to say the least, but somehow I felt honnoured as well.....,

Greetings, Ed

Dear Avi,

Ummm, prices for just about anything you buy are arbitrary, what with most goods not having any inherent or fixed value.

Artists, like everyone else producing or distributing something, get to establish what their standard price will be. Sale prices work just as well (or poorly) for artists as they do for Target.

I have a nice collection of Adams books, including the color book, and I love my iPad (on which I'm typing this), but this app as described seems a bit thin for the price. Unfortunately, there is no way to preview an iPad app before buying.


I too bought the Adams Color Photography book and love it. I would love to have the yellow flower hilltop panorama (Colorama) hanging on my wall. But, I probably could never afford it. CHEERS...Mathew

You could read a review....

Mike (Just sayin')

Ansel Adams's color work with Polaroid cameras was interesting, too. Especially that done with the SX-70.

Publishing Ansel's color work as if it represented anything other than a curiosity--as if it represented work he would have counted as serious, expressive work, stains Ansel's name and reputation.

Don't tell me the app includes those color images, please...
