Shaping a Legacy for the National Gallery

Robert Adams, the 75-year-old photographer who has devoted more than four decades to capturing the lush beauty and stark desolation of the American West, has been working with curators at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, selecting 169 prints from his own holdings for the museum to acquire. His choices not only chart his entire career, they also complement the 25 images by him that the gallery already owns.
