Price: 31.50 USD
New York, New York: Aperture Foundation, Inc, 1989. Brown stamped cloth, brown & illus. dust jacket, 175 pp., many BW illus. Showcases these views of the American West from 1965-1986, as seen by American photographer Robert Adams (b. 1937). "Robert Adams's photographs emphasize the redemptive beauty of nature in the face of man's widespread and unremitting misuse of the land. Working in the western United States, Adams shows nature not in 'protected' isolation in the national parks nor in the remote reaches of such wilderness as still exists, but in familiar settings and ordinary places. From a clearcut in late afternoon light to a bush illuminated by a street lamp, he focuses on the modest -- even banal -- aspects of nature, and finds in them the remarkable." (dj) Includes a chronology, exhibition and award history, bibliography, an essay by Adams, and a poem by Cid Corman.
