Robert Adams: The New West, Landscapes Along the Colorado Front Range
The Colorado Associated University Press,, Boulder, Colorado 1974 - True first edition.Photographs, introduction and additional text by Robert Adams. Foreword by John Szarkowski. 122 pp., with 56 black and white plates. 9-1/4 x 10 inches.Originally published in 1974, Robert Adams¿ The New West signaled a paradigm shift in the photographic representation of American landscapes. Foregoing photography¿s traditional role of romanticizing the Western landscape, Adams focused instead on the construction of tract and mobile homes, subdivisions, shopping centers and urban sprawl in the suburbs of Colorado Springs and the Denver area. Adams transmuted these zones with his minimalist vision of their austerity; as he has noted, ¿no place is boring, if you've had a good night's sleep and have a pocket full of unexposed film.¿ Objective and direct, Adams¿ photographs, rendered in his signature middle-gray scale, unsentimentally depict a despoiled landscape washed in the intense Colorado sunlight. Today The New West stands alongside Walker Evans¿ American Photographs, Robert Frank¿s The Americans and Stephen Shore¿s Uncommon Places in the pantheon of landmark projects on American culture and society. An excellent copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
