In his photo book SIGHTSEER photographer Roger Minick has created not only an engaging study of the activity of sightseeing in America, but a poignant time-capsule of the American people at the end of the 20th Century. For the book, cultural writer and activist Lucy R. Lippard has written a timely essay about the images, both from a historical and contemporary perspective, and with lots of crackling wit and insight along the way.
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 books AMERICAN BIOGRAPHICS, SIGHTSEER, CELL PEOPLE, SEEN from TRAIN, and UNDOCUMENTED are published by Perambulation Press, a self-publishing venture founded by Roger Minick, specializing in fine quality limited edition books.
