    In Art Can Help, the internationally acclaimed American photographer Robert Adams offers over two dozen meditations on the purpose of art and the responsibility of the artist. In particular, Adams advocates art that evokes beauty without irony or sentimentality, art that “encourages us to gratitude and engagement, and is of both personal and civic consequence.”

    denver and What We Bought, together with The New West, form a loose trilogy of Robert Adams’s (born 1937) work exploring the rapidly developing landscape of the Denver metropolitan area from 1968 through 1974. In the former two books, Adams created a comprehensive document that was resolute in its avoidance of romantic notions of the American West and dispassionately honest about man’s despoliation of the land. Both books demonstrate the artist at the height of his powers as a documentary photographer and a poetic sequencer of images.

    In This Day, Robert Adams (born 1937) observes two kinds of landscapes—those inside his home, including arrangements of nasturtium leaves and apples on the kitchen table, as well as the views outside his window and beyond. The windswept headlands, beach grasses, and felled trees seen by the photographer on his walks are animated by an atmospheric light. Together, these pictures reveal the undeniable presence of the sublime in everyday life.

    Skogen is the Swedish word for forest, and while the dense woods featured in Robert Adams’s most recent series of photographs grow near his home in Oregon, the pictures evoke a wild utopia, and convey a hushed, primeval awe. This volume, the latest to document Adams’s ongoing quest to find form amid the chaos of nature, features forty-six previously unpublished images, a body of work that is among the most pictorially complex of Adams’s distinguished career.
