About the Book
EyeRamblings, Roger Minick’s second book of photographs made with the iPhone camera, is a collection of photographs taken during recent road trips around the United States and Western Europe. In the book’s preface, Minick writes:
“In sequencing and pairing the images – often having disparate subject matter or place of creation, similar or contrasting tonality, com-position, feeling, irony – I tried to recreate that timeless magic that travel engenders, whereby borders between countries fade, history and memory blend, new perspectives become life-changing... As for the book’s basic concept and design, specifically the tweaking of otherwise color files into black and white images with vignetted, textured borders, I felt that the way black and white transforms a full spectrum world into a mono-chromatic world of form and shape and light would enhance the timeless quality I was after...”
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.
