George Tice (American, b. 1938)
Tice is one of the finest American photographers of his generation. His body of work has continually focused on the American rural and suburban landscape. The Lancaster, Pennsylvania series concentrates on the daily life of the Amish people and their integration with the landscape around them. Tice's other work features the architectural and industrial motifs that identify American society. Tice is especially well known for his printing skill. His image of "Country Road" (at right) is a fine example of this. He served as master printer for Edward Steichen as well as printing the portfolios of such artists as Frederick H. Evans and Edward Weston.
Tice's photographs have been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and abroad. His photographs can be found in such prestigious collections as that of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
