Stare. It is the way to educate your eye, and more. Stare, pry, listen, eavesdrop. Die knowing something. You are not here long. -- Walker Evans

Robert Adams and Robert Frank

Returning to Robert Adams: The PhotoEphemera Blog has a page on his book The New West, containing what is, in retrospect, a hilarious review from Popular Photography Magazine, which didn't get it at all, and an excellent interview with Adams, below that.

You have to scroll down a long way to get past the shots of the book.

Fishpond has the best price anywhere online that I've found, for The New West.

There's also an interesting Time Magazine discussion of The New West and Robert Frank's The Americans, which were republished around the same time, entitled Two Reissued Photography Books Reconsidered.
