Toronto. “George TICE (1938-) is one of the most important photographer of his generation. He is world famous for his black and white photos representing the American culture, urban and rural landscapes. His work is shown in more than a hundred museums and institutions worldwide. His photos of a small-town communities and urban environment won numerous awards and are represented in the most prestigious public collections.”
So says the cut-line in the GADCOLLECTION email notice of their George Tice exhibition – from March 14th to April 14th this year. The exhibition is entitled “An America Story” and displays his work taken in the mid to very late 20th century.
When you look at the ESSO station and the apartment building in Hoboken you can smell the oil, the gasoline, the suppers, as dusk settles in on this small city best known as the home of a young Frank Sinatra years before his climb to fame and fortune in music and movies.
Tice was one of the photographers whose work I admired years ago when he appeared in some Photography magazines (or perhaps books) that I read. If you are visiting Paris, France this spring, by all means drop in to GADCOLLECTION – a great chance to enhance your collection with a print or two created by the eye of a great American photographer.
