Through photography, Robert Adams seeks to find and express meaning in life by examining the landscapes near where he has lived. Often, he deliberately confronts damaged environments and challenges himself to find beauty in them. In this case, though, Adams expresses the serenity of a perfect moment: a night sky filled with stars and the silhouette of a leafy treetop.
