Robert Adams

[These] photographs encourage and reward sustained looking … In Skogen, Adams’ photographs describe beauty as a means by which the world coheres, and as a focal point for our care of it and each other. —Brent Aldrich, Englewood Review of Books

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the latest to document Adams’s ongoing quest to find form amid the chaos of nature, features forty-six previously unpublished images, a body of work that is among the most pictorially complex of Adams’s distinguished career.
