Ansel Adams's photographic career was paralleled by his desire to achieve the finest quality of photomechanical reproduction of his images for his many fine printed books. For thirty years, he relied upon letterpress halftone to recreate the aesthetic effect of his 'f/64' style. In the 1960s, as letterpress for photographic reproduction was phased out by most commercial printers, George Waters introduced Adams to the new technology of offset lithography. Together, they formed a highly successful collaboration as artist and master printer from 1969 to 1979.
