Deforestation // Robert Adams

What really grabbed my attention in Robert Adams’ photography was the picture of the cut tree trunk with the beer can. In my opinion, it really defined his work because it, as he said, exemplifies what is going on and what is wrong with the world. He captured the essence of the new developing world in one photo. He also really speaks of his interests passionately when he reminisces on his past work. You can tell by the tone in his voice he really felt strongly of the effects man has on nature and how as we approach the future, the consequences of our actions will really come to show. I didn’t find his pictures to be so much aesthetically pleasing but it doesn’t mean that it was less compelling – in fact it really does tell a story and his message gets through. So his artwork is really effective in the sense his voice is speaking to his audience in his work.
