Joshua Chang, Robert Adams


In the summer and fall of 2017, the photographer Robert Adams invited Joshua Chuang, his frequent collaborator, to document the objects that Adams has made over the years for his own consolation and pleasure. The resulting color pictures-of half-model ships and boats, a miscellany of open books and cherished species of birds, all formed by hand from wood-have been brought together with views from the home Adams shares with his wife Kerstin to reveal a little-known aspect of his search for coherence in a fractured world.

Strange to have come through the whole [twentieth] century and find that the most interesting thing is the birds. John Hay
