Robert Adams is a Colorado photographer best known for his work as part of the New Topographics: Photographs of a Man-Altered Landscape which was an International Museum of Photography (which is located at the George Eastman House) exhibit in the mid-1970s. I just watched a terrific discussion on how Adams’ landscapes differ from calendar photographs, which I found fascinating, plus a look at his book, Prairie.
It made me want to go out and make some Robert Adams’ style photographs, which follow this video talk. My photos certainly don’t belong in a calendar as the author describes, though I also don’t claim they compare to his work.
Here’s the video with a good look at Adams’ book, Prairie. Good stuff.
Kim Beil, who made this video, also gives a fascinating talk on the B&H Podcast.
