FEATURED: EDEN

Eden… To the East of the interstate highway that bisects it are the railroad tracks… To the West a roadhouse (closed)… Extending beyond along the freeway are billboards advertising whiskey, real estate and ice. Except for casual greetings from the waitresses in the cafe, Eden is a place without human gentleness. the air is weighted by the sound of traffic. – Robert Adams, 1968

p1050538Description: Hard bound limited edition INSCRIBED BY ROBERT ADAMS “Eden at ’50’ Love A”. One of 1000 printed copies. Original quarter black cloth, black paper over boards, title stamped on the front board in red, pink, white and green.  Robert Adam’s earliest body of work from 1968. Tritone images expertly printed from the original negatives. A series of seventeen black and white photographs made in and around an off-ramp truck stop cafe in Colorado. Adams was among the first to capture the new themes brought about by America’s changing economical, environmental, and visual terrain. He was concerned with the moment of regional transition, in this case the suburbanization of Denver. Some minor rubbing to boards, otherwise fine. A rare and sought after title!.
