(MIT Press, 2022).
A series of fifty diptychs: on the left, a close-up on the face of a personal-injury lawyer on a US roadside billboard; on the right, the landscape the billboard is facing, captured by rotating the camera 180º. A text by art historian David Joselit accompanies the series on facing pages, and the book concludes with a long conversation between Adams and Joselit.
“Strange, provocative, unique, opaque—to say the least—but also strong and enigmatic,
makes an important statement about the visual landscape of twenty-first-century America.”
—Shelley Rice, New York University
