Robert Adams: A Parallel World

Inspired by a poem from Denise Levertov which finds solace in nature, Robert Adams presents scenes of deep and unexpected beauty along the Oregon coast. The black and white photographs, made between 2015 and 2018, depict dunes and windswept trees, empty beaches and arresting skies, and views of a glittering Pacific seen through the windows of a home. Paying close attention to the qualities of light that falls on these places, Adams asks, by implication, what such beauty means. He writes, “The pictures establish that though we are not central, we share in a mystery.”
