Roger Minick was born in Ramona, Oklahoma in 1944 and grew up in Arkansas. He attended the University of California, Berkeley from 1964 to 1969, during which he began working in photography. He began his first photographic project, Delta West, in 1966, in which he documented the land and people of California’s Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. The project evolved into an award-winning book entitled Delta West (Scrimshaw Press, 1969), and was heralded as one of the Fifty Best Books of the Year by the American Institute of Graphic Arts in 1970. In addition to receiving a Guggenheim Fellowship, Minick was one of five photographers selected to work on a two-year project on the Mexican American community called Espejo, which was sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund in 1977.
