Photographer Robert Adams has published more than 30 books of photographs over the past 40 years . Robert Adams (born May 8, 1937) is an American photographer who has focused on the changing landscape of the American West.

Photographer Robert Adams has published more than 30 books of photographs over the past 40 years, and is best known for "The New West", a devastating indictment of the damage done to the western landscape by thoughtless development, a book that, at least at first viewing, seems to be full of bitterness and irony. Other books by Adams (for example, "Listening to the River") reveal a much gentler view of the landscape, and seem, at first viewing, to be the work of a different artist.

The Place We Live traces Adams’ deep engagement with the geography of the American West, weaving together .

The Place We Live traces Adams’ deep engagement with the geography of the American West, weaving together various aspects of over four decades of work into a cohesive, epic narrative of the American experience. Taken as a whole, this publication elucidates the photographer’s civic goals: to consider the privilege of the place we were given and the obligations of citizenship. Volume three offers a detailed chronology of Adams’ life, an illustrated bibliography of his monographs, selections from his personal archive, and a series of critical essays on his work by Joshua Chuang, Tod Papageorge, Jock Reynolds and John Szarkowski.

Such is the case with Robert Adams's traveling retrospective exhibition organized by Yale University Art Gallery and represented in the three-volume catalog The Place We Live, which covers the period from 1964 to 2009. Adams's black-andwhite images are at once sublime and uneventful. His document of the American landscape is not the grandeur of Ansel Adams (no relationship) but a carefully considered portrait of our daily surroundings presented in a manner that gradually leaves us more breathless than the magnificent photographs of Ansel.

Joshua Chuang, the curator of the exhibition, leads viewers through this collection of photographs by Robert Adams. With a photographic style that is austere and direct yet also full of nuance and expressive potential, Robert Adams (Orange, New Jersey, 1937) has been widely regarded as one of the most lucid chroniclers of the profound changes taking place in the landscape of the American West in recent decades. The Place We Live, the first retrospective on Robert Adams to be held in Spain, takes a look at the main projects undertaken by this photographer

Photographer Robert Adams has published more than 30 books of photographs over the past 40 years, and is best known for "The New West", a devastating indictment of the damage done to the western landscape by thoughtless development, a book that, at least at first viewing, seems to be full of bitterness and irony. Other books by Adams (for example, "Listening to the River") reveal a much gentler view of the landscape, and seem, at first viewing, to be the work of a different artist.

What one hopes for in a retrospective work is some kind of line through all the work of an artist, a discussion of the path the artist followed--and this three volume set does that job splendidly. The frontispiece of the book shows two neighbors standing in a barren yard, chatting--an iconic image from "The New West"--and the last image in volume 3 is of a dog sitting quietly next to what might be the grave of a previous dog, an image from "I hear the leaves and love the light". And between these two images are many photographs and stories--some of them familiar from previous books--but a substantial number of new images, all of which serve the purpose of connecting the dots of Adams career. For example, volume 3 begins with a five page spread of photographs of a single cottonwood tree, lovingly photographed on many days over several years, but followed with two images showing an earthmover covering over the irrigation ditch that watered the tree, the beginning of a development project to convert the field to a suburban neighborhood, and ending with a night shot of the tree gently towering over the new homes, although it is not clear if the tree is living or dead.

The structure of the three volume set is very interesting--Volume 1 presents pictures from the plains of eastern Colorado and the landscape around Denver, along with images of "From the Missouri West". Volume 2 seems to be mostly about other places--California, Oregon--but including the lovely images from "Listening to the River". Volume 3 is devoted mostly to essays and chronologies, but is interspersed with enough photographs to create a satisfying rhythm to the book.

As a Robert Adams admirer for many years, I have sometimes struggled to explain my affection for his work--many of his single pictures appear so simple, so banal, that new viewers struggle to understand why anyone would make photographs of these subjects. This book manages to provide a context to see Adams' work as a single, lifelong effort to see the western landscape clearly and honestly, but also with a deep love.

Long time Adams fan, and I have many of his original books. This was a wonderful - and important - exhibition to see (LACMA). This Book/Collection: As many have said, beautiful printing and some important essays. But the publisher really missed the mark with the overall presentation - these books come in a cardboard box (like the ones used to ship modems).. terrible and cheap! No thought into storage and preservation of these books. For the price (even at 157-, let alone 250-) the publisher should have considered the overall quality/importance of this great artist and presented these books in at least a decent slip-case. But a cardboard box? Really? This is a nice collection, but it should have been treated with more care - these images, books, and Robert deserved better. BTW: Book II is mostly spreads of pages from his other books, mostly small images, showing covers, etc. Not quite what I was expecting. If money and storage/care/presentation are not a concern, then buy this, but I feel that they could have done better (eps. for the price), Robert and these nice books deserved better treatment.

Robert Adams: `Are there affirmable days or places in our deteriorating world? Are there scenes in life, right now, for which we might conceivably be thankful? Is there a basis for joy or serenity, even if felt only occasionally? Are there grounds now and then for an unironic smile?'

Robert Adams (born May 8, 1937) is an American photographer who has focused on the changing landscape of the American West. He was born n Orange, New Jersey, and lived in Madison, Wisconsin briefly before moving to Wheat Ridge, Colorado, a suburb of Denver, in 1952. As a child he developed chronic bronchial problems, and part of the reason his family moved to Colorado was to help alleviate those problems. At age 15 he began to experience chronic bronchial problems, and at age 12 he contracted polio in his back, left arm, and hand but was able to recover. He continued to suffer from asthma and allergy problems. During his childhood, Adams often accompanied his father on walks and hikes through the woods. Adams was a Boy Scout and worked in the summers of his adolescence boys' camps in the Rocky Mountains. In 1955, he hunted for the last time. During high school, he studied architectural drawing for a year.

This three volume set of superbly crafted books allows the viewer to study Adams' seemingly simple images in such a way that the real truth behind the subject matter comes through. For over four decades Robert Adams has photographed the changing landscape of the American West, finding there a fragile beauty that endures despite our troubled relationship with nature, and with ourselves. Here are plain houses, empty lots, rides on traveling circuses, and architectural constructs at times involving man and at other times providing different vantages for viewing trees an mountains and plains and all of nature. The exhibition now traveling is impossible to forget, the images make such an impact for their honesty and simplicity.
This large set of volumes helps us recall the tiny details that at times fade into memory. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, April 12
