At the end of the books, there is a kind of index with all the tearshhets.
This book is really impressive, especially for a photo editor…
Published 2010 by Aperture, bought at Schaden during Offprint. Well I wanted to buy this one at the Aperture booth inside Paris Photo, but… I wanted to have a look at the 1985 edition, and I asked but I have been answered : “no, this book is for collectors”.
What if I’m a collector ? So I decided I’ll get the book somewhere else.
Signed copy, for non collectors.

published 1983 by Aperture, bought on Amazon for $142,93. Oups, but it’s worth it !
Exchanging emails with French photographer Grégoire Pujade-Lauraine made me look for this book. I’m quite lucky i found it.
Another great lesson from Robert Adams.
He photographed people closed to the Denver factory of plutonium bombs.
He’s “just” showing people, passer by in the streets, the daily life of a normal city.
This one is edited by Aperture, and i bought it on thehut.com too (£19,74).
It is an expanded version of the 1985 edition.
This is the Robert Adams I love.
And i like the paper (and the smell), the format. The pictures are great. It’s all about dark, contrast, light, and civilized nature.
This one was bought at Comptoir de l’Image (44 rue de Sévigné 75003 Paris) too.
85 euros ; it was published by Aperture in 1988.
These are pictures taken in The Pawnee National Grasslands reserve. To me it’s all about love : for the landscape, the nature, and his wife
My project is to buy all the Robert Adams books, good idea, right ?
published by Aperture (2007),
bought at the Beaubourg bookshop ; 16 euros
This is a book i remembered i wanted to buy a few months ago, so i had to buy it when i saw it was on sale at the bookstore. This was the last issue they were selling.
I love the landscapes pictures. I have seen many times the picture called Slapy (page 19) : this is a strong picture but i don’t like it. My favorite spread is pages 46-47. Snow in picture has always been a magnet to my eyes, and i love the colors of the right page.
