Author Susan Straight reads an original essay and reflects on Adams's work on the occasion of the exhibition Robert Adams: The Place We Live, a Retrospective Selection of Photographs, on view at LACMA through June 3, 2012.

Straight is a lifelong Riverside resident and an award-winning author of seven novels. The Southern California landscape, which Straight has called "the language I knew from birth," figures prominently in her work. Her latest novel, Take One Candle Light a Room, was named one of the best novels of 2010 by the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times.
