Robert Adams: Perfect Places, Perfect Company



ISBN: 9783958291690 Category:

Robert Adams, Kerstin Adams


A reworking of a series of photographs made in the mid-1980s at Colorado’s Pawnee National Grassland and first published under the title Perfect Times, Perfect Places, this pair of books conveys the privilege and sensory pleasure of walking a vast, open space. With Kerstin, his wife, and Sally, their dog, Robert Adams would drive out to the reserve to experience silence, stillness and affection. Although he is perhaps best known for picturing a damaged American geography, here Adams has recorded scenes that are flawless.

On the prairie there is sometimes a quiet so absolute that it allows one to begin again, to love the future. Robert Adams
