Adams and his wife Kerstin have for over thirty years vacationed in Astoria, Oregon, a small town by the Columbia River estuary, finding there a balance for the geography that has been his primary subject. Until recently he made few pictures on the beaches and headlands where they walked, but in late 1990, troubled both by the impending war in the Persian Gulf and by the quickening deterioration of Astoria, he began to record scenes on which he and Kerstin had relied.
