About US-american photographer Robert ADAMS (b. 1937)

Robert ADAMS came to prominence as part of the photographic movement known as New Topographics (with Lewis BALTZ, B. & H. BECHER, Joe DEAL, Frank GOHLKE, Nicholas NIXON, John SCHOTT, Stephen SHORE & Henry WESSEL, jr). The over sixty monographs that Robert ADAMS has published to date harness the unique narrative and poetic potential of the book format, allowing individual images to relate to and build upon each other in order to form larger visual statements capable of adcomplex questions.
