About the Book
FIFTY, a selection of 50 photo projects by American photographer Roger Minick, is a comprehensive survey of his 50-year love affair with photography. The 2-4 images represented in each project, stunningly displayed, have been carefully selected by Minick himself, with many of the 134 images having never been published or exhibited before.
The result is a visual chronicle of an art- ists who, over a span of five decades, has freely shifted back and forth from documentary to experimental to the whimsical and fanciful. Throughout FIFTY we see work by someone who is not only deeply curious about the world around him, but who has remained passionately committed to making images that are both memorable and deeply personal.
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.
