Adams, a noted photographer of the American West, dislikes words that describe pictures. In this collection of poetic, thought-provoking and highly original essays, he examines Paul Strand's devotion to America and analyzes the origins of his art; he looks at the contradictions in Ansel Adams' life and work, and comes to his own conclusions. He writes movingly not only of people but of place--his beloved West--and his belief that "we live in several landscapes at once, among them the landscape of hope..."  
  
 
  
Midwest Book Review 
  
Why People Photograph presents a new selection of poignant essays by master photographer Robert Adams. Why People Photograph illuminates Adams' firm belief in the importance and relevance of art, with essays on such diverse topics as humor, teaching, money, and dogs. Adams also offers insights into the 32 black and white photographs, the diverse work of artists from Eugene Atget to Susan Meiselas.
