Episode #002: Robert Adams with photogravure plates for Harney County, Oregon (1999-2003) in his Oregon studio.

Robert Adams's black-and-white photographs document scenes of the American West, revealing the impact of human activity on the last vestiges of wilderness and open space. An underlying tension in Adams's body of work is the contradiction between landscapes visibly transformed or scarred by human presence and the inherent beauty of light and land rendered by the camera.
