Publisher Note

Inspired by a poem from Denise Levertov which finds solace in nature, Robert Adams presents scenes of natural beauty along the Oregon coast. The black and white photographs, made between 2015 and 2018, depict sand dunes and windswept trees, empty beaches and arresting skies, as well as views of the glittering Pacific Ocean seen through the windows of a home. Adams records the light that falls on these places, and asks, by implication, what such beauty means. He writes, “The pictures establish that though we are not central, we share in a mystery.”
