About the Book
In 2011, American photographer Roger Minick began screen capturing images from the internet that he found interesting. The images, mostly photographs, came largely from news articles and blogs, and at first he did not know what to do with them, but then after a while, taking inspiration from artists such as Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg and Richard Prince, he began “appropri-
ating” these images by combining them via photoshop into triptychs.
Five years later, What In The World was born, a stunning display of insightful commentary on history, art, human existence, and the fate of the planet. Not only do these images, as the book’s title suggests, puzzle and confound, they often conjure up deep-seated associations in the human psyche.
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, Smithsonian, and numerous private collections. Two previous mainstream photographic books, published by Scrimshaw Press, include DELTA WEST and HILLS OF HOME. Recent publications AMERICAN BIOGRAPHICS, SIGHTSEER, CELL PEOPLE, SEEN from TRAIN, PERAMBULATIONS, UNDOCUMENTED, THE ETERNAL STARE, PARTHENON MARBLES, CORNUCOPIA, EyeEurope, EyeRamblings, WEB.CAM, SHADOWLIGHT, DELTA, OZARKS, 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.
