What We Bought: The New World.
Photographs by Robert Adams.
Sprengel Museum Hannover, Hanover, English, 1996. In Germany. 202 pp., 194 black-and-white illustrations, 9½x8½".

This new book of Robert Adams' photographs from the 1970s is another aspect of his ongoing document of the American landscape. But this time, instead of capturing the beauty of a natural setting, Adams focuses on the city of Denver, Colorado. These desolate images of suburban housing developments, shopping malls, cars, and supermarkets mourn the victory of consumerism over our so-called love of nature and rugged individualism. The book is a subtly devastating portrait of the infiltration of mass-production in the American landscape.
