Prayers in an American Church.

Prayers in an American Church. By Robert Adams. Nazraeli Press, 2012. 40 pp., illustrated throughout, 6x9". Limited edition of 1000 copies. Images from here.

Book description:

" 'Each of us welcomes quiet. As a private person, a citizen, and a photographer, these are some of the words I find myself remembering and repeating'. —— (Robert Adams)

This small volume, with just 12 quoted prayers and 17 photographs by the artist, is among the most personal of Robert Adams’s books.

'It is an old man’s book', he says, 'and reflects my conviction that art and religion come from the same sense of dependence'.
