Robert Adams talks…

Back in NY, I had the advantage of raiding the amazing library of Howard Greenberg, while working at his gallery. Of many of the amazing discoveries of books were several by Robert Adams. Most notably, ‘Our Lives and Our Children’, and ‘The New World (What We Bought)’ in addition to his fantastic writings on photography and art.
HIs contributions to photography and cultural discussions are innumerable. It was to my delight that I came across this page on the Getty’s website showcasing a retrospective of Adam’s work. As well as key images, the real treat is audio interviews with Adams about his work.

    I’ve wanted to get my hands on a copy of ‘What We Bought’ for ten years. So jealous.

    I was over at Schedel’s place the other night looking at his copy of “Summer Night’s”…such good work. I think that anyone who’s ever thought about landscape photography or even photography in general can learn quite a bit from Adams.
