Text from The Photography Encyclopedia

Adams, Robert Hickman (1937-) American nature photographer

After earning a doctorate in English and becoming a college professor, Adams decided to shift careers and focus on his true love, photography, in 1970. Since then, he's made a name for himself with more than 20 books, mainly chronicling the, American West, particularly the Colorado landscape, in and around Denver. He attributes his affinity for the Western landscape to boyhood adventures such as hiking, river rafting, and camping. His black and white photographs of characteristically spare landscapes have brought him two National Endowment for the Arts Photography fellowships (1973, 1978), a Guggenheim award (1973), and a MacArthur fellowship (1994).
