I’ve been a fan of Adams for a while (I wrote my Landscape module essay on him during my BA), I’ve got a number of his books, but this one is truly different, yet somehow the same. You cannot mistake the photographer’s voice in the images, but here (from what I’ve seen) he’s looking inwards, he’s far more introspective than I’ve seen in his work before. Yes, there is still some of the same work going on, but this has an interesting twist. There are people for a start. There has been before too I suppose, but not many of them, and not as the main subject matter - I’m thinking here of
Summer Nights Walking, my copy of which is somewhere in a room of books piled on the floor after our house move, so I’m unable to verify, but I’m sure there are people walking in some (I need to get someone in to install bookcases soon...).

This could be one for the future (the reason not for now is in the preceding paragraph).
