Format: Hardcover
This is not a 'coffee table' book, but one which requires serious thought and study. Ostensibly about clear cutting in Oregon, it is a commentry on our world and what we are doing to it. He does offer hope but it is a thin one. It should be essential study for all photographers involved in environmental photography, in fact anyone concerned with our present attitudes to the world we all live in. Robert Adams most important book yet,but a demanding book to 'read'.

This book may seem a bit inaccessible at first, but rewards those willing to spend time with it. The images are of forests, mostly in Oregon, close to the place Bob Adams has made home for the last decade. In this landscape, Adams finds elements that resonate both with the past and the present, celebrating what remains, but also showing very clearly the damage done. The most savage pictures are those of clear cuts, where the stumps of the virgin forests still remain, but the effect seems more to be from war rather than commerce. These images are all the more striking when we consider the images we have not seen from our recent history.

Format: Hardcover
Robert Adams is a significant American Photographer. Adam's photographs and this book are a reminder how much of our natural world has been destroyed by the greed of the forest industry in the Pacific Northwest. Adams has shown devastation inflicted on the landscape as Mathew Brady showed Civil War battlefields. This book goes further and is a superb book to own.
