None of these exquisite photographs have been published in any of Tice's previous books. Four of his major themes are represented in this collection: Paterson, Urban Landscapes, Lincoln and Hometowns. Most of these images were taken with those volumes in mind but he did not select them for publication for various reasons: space, cost, variants not needed, retrospect, events, time. The images made from 2008 onward are new. In fact they all look new to Tice because he printed them only recently for the first time.

We now see images that were locked away in Tice's files - some for more than forty years - come to life. With this publication, sumptuously printed in quadtone, Tice's body of work is enlarged considerably. There is much to savor in this collection, from the Great Falls of the Passaic River in Paterson, to Tice's memento mori of the now vanished twin towers of the World Trade Center, to how America honours Lincoln, to Winslow Farm in Fairmount, Indiana where James Dean was raised. Times have changed, decades have passed, but Tice's vision remains consistent, understated and masterful.

All photos were scanned from Tice's finished fiber prints and were meticulously edited to print as quadtones in 400 line BrilliantRez.on Phoenix Motion Xantur paper and fine case binding.

"Tice is an 'urban landscape' photographer, half of whose photographs are of nature or rural scenes, an artist who can be as pictorial as early Stieglitz or as starkly documentary as Walker Evans... There is a stillness and classical sense of balance to his work that makes it seem to belong, often, to an earlier era of photography." - August Kleinzhaler
