Another one in our Robert Adams collection.
Love that spread.
Hopefully this show will come to UK and Spain (Madrid) in 2013. Only 2 years to wait.
Published by Fraenkel / Matthew Marks Galleries, 2005. Can’t remember where I got it, I think it’s at my friend’s, Kai.
As you may already know, I’m very sensitive to Robert Adams work. I have seen this work at Fondation Cartier, here in Paris, 3 years ago.
Nothing much to say about this (very classical) book.
The work is - of course - very impressive.
Just because exhibitions don’t last for ever and that we need to keep memories.
Published Steidl 2010, can’t remember where and how much I bought it. Just remember I had to order it twice…
As a big fan of Robert Adams, I couldn’t help but buy this one and go further

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.
edited by Steidl, I bought this one on thehut.com (£27,72)
I’m quite disapointed with this one. I think old editions of Robert Adams, with much less pictures are way better. Here there are too many pictures, and it’s lacking editing.
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 ?

There was a Robert Adams exhibition, 2 years ago at Fondation Cartier, here in Paris.
I already have 2 books of him, but until now never owned a signed one !
I like his pictures for being simple, black and white, strong. Peaceful. Natural.
