ロバート・アダムス『denver』『What We Bought: The New World』復刻+西海岸と東海岸での個展明日まで

◇ denver / What We Bought: The New World - Adams, Robert; Yale University Art Gallery - Yale University Press

denver and What We Bought, together with The New West, form a loose trilogy of Robert Adams’s work exploring the rapidly developing landscape of the Denver metropolitan area from 1968 through 1974. In the former two books, Adams created a comprehensive document that was resolute in its avoidance of romantic notions of the American West and dispassionately honest about man’s despoliation of the land. Both books demonstrate the artist at the height of his powers as a documentary photographer and a poetic sequencer of images.


The photographs featured in denver and What We Bought show tract housing with mountain ranges in the distance, trailer lots devoid of people, suburban streets through generic windows, shopping mall interiors, and parking lots: subjects distinctly unspectacular, familiar, and banal. Adams’s compositions are straightforward and democratic, and it is this precise turn from sentimentality that has made Adams one of the most influential figures in the history of American photography.

ルイス・ボルツ(Lewis Baltz)の『Park Ciry』とアプローチの違いを比較すべき作品。
良い意味での「loose」ってことになるんでしょうけども。
(追記:「loose」というのは見誤っていました。見直せば見直すほど重要な作品だと思えてきます)
