DESCRIPTION

Robert Adams (Orange, New Jersey, 1937) has been described as one of the most singular and original chroniclers of the American West. Adams took up photography in the 1960s in an attempt to capture the rapid topographical changes he was witnessing in Denver, where he then lived. He has since developed, over his four decade-long career, a style known for its austerity and its particular, nuance-filled vision. This selection traces the long relationship in images between Robert Adams and life in the United States, a relationship based on the beauty of humanity and its communication with nature.
