George Tice | American, 1938 -
George Tice was self taught in the use of the view camera and began photographing the rural Amish communities of Pennsylvania, a region that he grew up in and returned to over the time span of eight years to produce his well known photo-essay on the life and sect of the traditional Amish community. He was included in the opening group show at the Witkin Gallery in 1969, that set a precedence for photographic exhibitions. His books include Paterson, (1972) a document of the old industrial city of Paterson, New Jersey recorded in a somber style indebted to Walker Evans. The photographs of George Tice are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Smithsonian Institution, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Los Angeles County Museum, among others.
