Click to preview AMERICAN BIOGRAPHICS photo book

For nearly five decades, photographer Roger Minick has been exploring the back roads of American, making dozens of road trips alone and with his family. Between 1996 and 1998, he made six such trips, driving for more than 50,000 miles the width and breadth of the United States of America. From the hundreds of photographs Minick made during these years of travel comes American Biographics, a book that promises to become a kind of time-capsule of the American landscape at the beginning of the 21st Century. With quiet elegance and a keen sensibility, Roger Minick herein gives us a timely and personal look at what he sees as the unique visual interplay between America’s mythic past, ironic present, and uncertain future.
