About the Book
From the moment he took up the camera, Roger Minick has explored the back roads of America, making dozens of road trips alone and with his family.
AMERICAN BIOGRAPHICS is the culmination of this more that fifty years of wandering, a book that promises to become a kind of time-capsule of the American Landscape at the beginning of the Twenty-First Century.
With quiet elegance and keen sensibility, Minick herein presents a timely and personal look at what he sees as the unique visual interplay between America’s mythic past, ironic present, and uncertain future.
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.

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.
