Robert Adams’ Journey to Nehalem Bay

RA.4660d.tif

 

KQED reviews our exhibition “Robert Adams: A Road Through Shore Pine.” The review provides insight into Adams’s use of metaphor.

Adams’ photos, however, appear to be an homage to that road, not the dirty, oil-stained asphalt, but the idea of it as a journey or a destination. Many travelers are particularly fond of certain roads—they are drawn to the trees that flank the pavement, the tourist traps that divert their spare change, or memories of conversations they’ve shared with a lover while speeding through a valley of dried sagebrush. –Matthew Harrison Tedford
