Read full description of the books:



A now classic text on the art, "Why People Photograph" gathers a selection of essays by the great master photographer Robert Adams, tackling such diverse subjects as collectors, humor, teaching, money and dogs. Adams also writes brilliantly on Edward Weston, Paul Strand, Laura Gilpin, Judith Joy Ross, Susan Meiselas, Michael Schmidt, Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange and Eugene Atget. The book closes with two essays on "working conditions" in the nineteenth- and twentieth-century American West, and the essay "Two Landscapes." Adams writes: "At our best and most fortunate we make pictures because of what stands in front of the camera, to honor what is greater and more interesting than we are."

Adams, Robert Hickman (1937-) American nature photographer

After earning a doctorate in English and becoming a college professor, Adams decided to shift careers and focus on his true love, photography, in 1970. Since then, he's made a name for himself with more than 20 books, mainly chronicling the, American West, particularly the Colorado landscape, in and around Denver. He attributes his affinity for the Western landscape to boyhood adventures such as hiking, river rafting, and camping. His black and white photographs of characteristically spare landscapes have brought him two National Endowment for the Arts Photography fellowships (1973, 1978), a Guggenheim award (1973), and a MacArthur fellowship (1994).
