Robert Adams: The Place We Live, A Retrospective Selection of Photographs | March 11 – June 3
A LACMA retrospective of photographer Robert Adams’ work spans his 45-year career with an extraordinarily peaceful and full perspective. Adams’ way of seeing the American landscape is deeply reflective of times past and offers a romanticized view of a time in history when life seemed more honest.
The digital aspect of the retrospective is a nice touch and, with nearly 300 photographs to soak in, takes the viewer through a range of Adams’ photos — from the early days around his hometown in Colorado to his more recent work in the Pacific Northwest.
LACMA has a host of incredible events and shows planned for the summer, and the free Wi-Fi is a serious incentive to just get up and hang out there all day.
