In the late 1960s and early 1970s Robert Adams explored new housing tracts that were being built along the Colorado Front Range. Certain elements of this new landscape recur in his photographs: uniform, boxy houses, concrete, cars, and dirt plots–as well as a sense of loneliness and isolation. "People had moved to enjoy nature, but found that nature was mostly inaccessible except on weekends," Adams wrote. "Often little of it was even visible out the window. The puzzle became how to live inside."
