From the publisher: "Kerstin Adams has often accompanied her husband Robert when he has photographed the rural West. On those trips he would sometimes turn, after making a picture of the landscape, and make another that included her. "Kerstin loves the forest and prairie and shore," Adams writes, "which is part of my love for her. When we are there, portraiture and landscape seem one; she shares nature's glory, and nature is warmed by her caring." A Portrait in Landscapes reproduces a selection of these linked pictures, together with related views. They span almost forty years. Most have not been published before. Two of the photographs are of Kerstin reading. This volume might itself be understood as a letter. The pictures reproduced in this book record their affection for the places they have been, and for each other. Printed in an edition of only 500 numbered copies, this beautiful artist's book is printed in duotone on matt art paper and bound in Japanese cloth. A must-have for the collectors of this important photographer's books, and a heartwarming testament to the power of human love."
