Synopsis 
  
The photographs of George Tice combine an appreciation of beauty with the grittiness of ordinary experience. Tice has often turned his camera on his native New Jersey, but these images of his home state, taken over the past 30 years, could be almost anywhere in America. They portray the cinemas, shops, dwellings and street scenes typical of cities both large and small. Without any effort to romanticize, George Tice honours the commonplace and creates monuments to the American scene.  
  
 
  
About the Author 
  
George Tice's work has been widely exhibited, including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and is collected in major museums around the country. He lives in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey.  
  
 
  
Book Description 
  
Photographs that offer beauty in the commonplace, nostalgia in the mundane, and American universality in urban New Jersey.  
  
 
  
The photographs of George Tice combine an appreciation of beauty with the grittiness of ordinary experience. Tice, the photographer/author of books like Hometowns: An American Pilgrimage, Fields of Peace, and the award-winning Paterson, has turned his camera many times to his native New Jersey. But these images of his home state, taken over the past thirty years, could be almost anywhere in America. They portray the movie theaters, shops, dwellings, and street scenes we have grown up with in cities large and small. Without the slightest effort to romanticize, Tice honors the commonplace with an extraordinary eye and a photographic excellence that is evocative to those of us who have experienced these settings. These pictures will stand the test of time as monuments to the American scene for future generations. 141 duotone photographs.
