Robert Adams tunes in with Tyler Green, the host of The Modern Art Notes Podcast, for an hour long interview on his latest book, Around the House. Adams has published more than 60 books in his lifetime, and is widely recognized for his visionary accounts of the American West. Around the House is Adams’ most intimate book to date, capturing the small yet significant moments that characterize his quotidian life.
The book is about nature really in a way. One of the great coherences of nature is that it has the cycle of days. I can’t explain it, except that this is the way we order our experiences; getting up and going to bed. —Robert Adams

The Modern Art Notes Podcast is a weekly podcast featuring artists, curators, art historians and authors and is an independent production of Modern Art Notes Media. The show is produced and hosted by Tyler Green and edited by Wilson Butterworth. They recently interviewed legendary photographer Robert Adams, whose major 46-year career survey, the first such exhibition since 1989, is on view at the Yale University Art Gallery through October 28.
“Adams may be the greatest living American photographer. In the 1960s and 1970s he brought a new sensibility to photographing the most classic subject in American art, the land. By emphasizing man’s impact on Colorado and its suburbs in series such as “The New West” and “What We Bought,” Adams helped pioneer art that addressed our impact on the landscape and on the Earth. While Adams is best known for his work looking at America’s consumption of Western land, he has also photographed the land he loves in ways that remind us why he loves it.”
