Adams, 75, is one of America’s greatest living photographers. In the 1960s and 1970s he brought a new sensibility to photographing the most classic subject of 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 the Earth.
