A precise eye for detail-here articulated by a chipped, slightly singed yellow candle holder nestled between pots and pans--distinguishes the photographs Adam Bartos made in the early 1990s at the recreational campgrounds of Hither Hills State Park in Montauk, Long Island. While the delicately printed tablecloth hints at the contrast between camping and creature comfort, the focus on eating implements connotes a well-worn tradition of domestic still lifes, telling the history of a family through an intimate portrait of its tools for nourishment.
