Robert Adams began by photographing suburban landscapes along the edge of the Rocky Mountains. His goal was to record the erasure of the American wilderness, while attempting to affirm what survives of it. For Adams, photography at this juncture in history presents a melancholy vocation: "It seems to me that we are now compelled to recognize that we have no place to go but where we've been," he judges. "We've got to go look at what we've done, which is oftentimes pretty awful, and see if we can't make of this place a civilized home." In Gone?, his most personal work to date, Adams lives out the implications of these words. In the 1980s, he revisited semi-rural areas he had known as a boy-landscapes that were no longer pristine, but which still retained their own particular qualities of light.

Book Description Hardcover. Condition: new. Hardcover. 'No one wants to be a prophet, if the job can be avoided. What you want to try to be is a psalmist' - Robert Adams. Robert Adams began by photographing suburban landscapes along the edge of the Rocky Mountains. His goal was then, and remains, to acknowledge the disappearance of wilderness but also to discover a basis for affirmation. In the 1980s, he went on to revisit semi-rural areas through which he had walked as a boy landscapes no longer pristine but still notable for their quiet, space and light. The views in this book, none published before, record some of what he found compelling. Robert Adams, born in 1937, came to prominence as part of the photographic movement known as New Topographics. His work has been widely exhibited both in Europe and the United States. His more than thirty publications include "The New West", "What We Bought", "Our Lives and Our Children", and "Turning Back". He is a recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, the Spectrum International Prize for Photography, and the Deutsche Borse Photography Prize. Robert Adams' goal was to acknowledge the disappearance of wilderness and also to discover a basis for affirmation. In the 1980s, he went on to revisit semi-rural areas through which he had walked as a boy landscapes no longer pristine but notable for their quiet, space and light. This book presents Robert's views on his quest. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability. Seller Inventory # 9783865219176
