In Notes For Friends, world-renowned photographer Robert Adams explores the possibility of discovering beauty in the compromised landscape of the new American West. His photographs, rendering the landscape in rich black-and-white images, clearly demonstrate that beauty can be found, suggesting a new kind of exploration that could yield a transforming discovery-the basis for a love of home. Pictures in the book reacquaint us with places that we may have lost to habit or prejudice. Robert Adams encourages us to walk minor roads that at first appear inconsequential, but that in fact lead to wonder. Light rains its miracle on fields next to suburban developments, across the slopes of nameless foothills, and onto trees next to expressways.
Robert Adams has been given fellowships by the Guggenheim and MacArthur Foundations, and awarded the Spectrum International Prize for Photography for his work. In The New York Times, Charles Hagen observed that "Mr. Adams has over the last two decades helped transform landscape photography in the United States." He made a name for himself photographing that which is being lost in the name of progress.Review:
"Adam's kind and hopeful but honest writing about making art and the importance of art is beautifully complicated by his imagery. He achieves a near-perfect balance of concept and form in photograph after photograph."
