Book Description 
  
In Notes For Friends, world-renowned photographer Robert Adams explores the possibility of discovering beauty in the compromised landscape of the new American West. His photographs, rendering the landscape in rich black-and-white images, clearly demonstrate that beauty can be found, suggesting a new kind of exploration that could yield a transforming discovery--the basis for a love of home. Pictures in the book reacquaint us with places that we may have lost to habit or prejudice. Robert Adams encourages us to walk minor roads that at first appear inconsequential, but that in fact lead to wonder. Light rains its miracle on fields next to suburban developments, across the slopes of nameless foothills, and onto trees next to expressways.  
  
 
  
For his work Adams was given fellowships by the Guggenheim and MacArthur Foundations, and was awarded the Spectrum International Prize for Photography. Charles Hagen, writing in The New York Times, has observed that "Mr. Adams has over the last two decades helped transform landscape photography in the United States." He has made a name for himself photographing that which was being lost in the name of progress, and in Notes for Friends Robert Adams looks back at the landscape of his beloved Colorado and tries to find what is left to be gained.
