You’ve heard the adage "a picture’s worth a thousand words." And it’s true. Pictures have power, and since the dawn of photography as we know it, individuals have been using photos to tell stories, influence others, and make a difference. Are you interested in collecting the works of legendary photographers? We’d like to begin spotlighting several of them for you. We hope these posts inspire you—to begin a collection, add to an existing one, or maybe get out and take some of your own photographs. If you do have a collection that includes any books of famous photographers, share with us your favorites in the comments below. Today, we’ll focus our attention on Ansel Adams.
