George Tice (American, b. 1938) is a photographer whose career spans more than 50 years. Tice began taking photographs at the age of 14, when he joined a camera club, and is primarily self-taught. He is best known for his thoughtful, poignant shots of everyday objects and scenes, especially those featuring his home state of New Jersey, and for the high quality of his black-and-white prints. In 1959, when Tice was only 20 years old, Edward Steichen, then the Director of Photography at New York’s Museum of Modern Art), selected one of his works for the Museum. Tice’s well-known series include Urban Landscapes (1975) and Paterson (1972), which document street scenes, shops, movie theaters, and homes around New Jersey. His work has been exhibited in the United States and around the world, including a 1972 solo exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, NY. Tice is the author of 16 books and the recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. He has taught since 1977 at the Maine Photographic Workshops, and currently lives in Middletown, NJ.
