Denver. A Photographic Survey of the Metropolitan Area. Photographs by Robert Adams. Colorado Associated University Press in cooperation with the State Historical Society of Colorado, 1977. Unpaged. Oblong quarto. First edition. Stiff photo-illustrated wrappers. Black-and-white reproductions.



"In Denver's vacant lots one can still find, no matter how numerous the food wrappers and pieces of styrofoam, an old, tough green--Spanish bayonet, cactus, and sage. Perhaps the most reassuring of all, there remain cottonwoods, those commercially useless trees that are habitat for birds and children. Whether I was photographing these accidental sanctuaries, however, or bare, new tracts, I tried to keep in mind a phrase from a novel by Kawabata: "My life, a fragment of a landscape." The same applied, I thought, to each of us, and to the objects, with which we live, My goal was not only to record the animate and inanimate fragments, but to show the totality, the landscape."--Robert Adams Typical sun-fading to wrappers; otherwise Fine.

Near Fine+; jacket rubbed; slight tilt to spine; with small area of shallow creasing at upper edge.
