About the Book
By nature, photographers are a restless breed. They are rarely content unless they are moving about, exploring the world with their eyes, and yes by extension, their cameras. Indeed, it is the camera's unique capacity to become an extension of the photographer's seeing––namely, to examine, and most importantly, to fix in time two-dimensional images from the found world--that makes the act of "perambulating" so profoundly satisfying for the photographer.
PERAMBULATIONS, photographer Roger Minick's latest book from Perambulation Press, is a series of 73 such images, made over a ten-year span of time with a 35mm camera (using 3200 black and white film). Responding to a wide range of subject matter that is both personal and documentary in nature, Minick has herein created a collection of memorable images of the uniquely American experience.
American Roger Minick has been photographing the American experience for nearly half a century. His photographs are included in permanent collections at the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the J Paul Getty Museum, George Eastman House, and The Smithsonian. Two previous mainstream photographic books, published by Scrimshaw Press, include DELTA WEST and HILLS OF HOME. The recent books AMERICAN BIOGRAPHICS, SIGHTSEER, CELL PEOPLE, SEEN from TRAIN, UNDOCUMENTED, THE ETERNAL STARE, PARTHENON MARBLES, CORNUCOPIA, EyeEurope, EyeRamblings, and FIFTY are published by Perambulation Press, a self-publishing venture founded by Roger Minick, specializing in fine quality limited edition books. Dylan Swift is Roger Minick's nom de plume.
