Over the past decade the renowned photographer Robert Adams (b. 1937) has turned his attention to the woods and shores near his home on the Oregon coast. 'Sea Stories' is a sequence of three visual narratives that follow Adams and his wife, Kerstin, as they walk among alder and maple trees, along the beach to observe the annual migration of shorebirds, and back eastward through meadows and what remains of the inland forest. Featuring many previously unpublished photographs, this book describes the cycles of nature with a new naturalism.
