George Tice (1938) is an American photographer best known for his large-format black-and-white photographs of New Jersey. Tice was born in Newark, New Jersey, and self-trained as a photographer. His work is included in major museum collections around the world and he has published many books of photographs, including Fields of Peace: A Pennsylvania German Album (1970), Paterson, New Jersey (1972), Seacoast Maine: People and Places (1973), Urban Landscapes: A New Jersey Portrait (1975), "Lincoln" (1984),Hometowns: An American Pilgrimage (1988), "Urban Ladnscapes" (2002), "Paterson II" (2006), and "George Tice: Selected Photographs1953-1999" (2001).
George Tice is considered one of the finest American photographers of his generation and a master printer. Tice has been fascinated with the urban landscape and its decay, a theme he explored as early as 1972, when he was honored with a solo exhibition, Paterson, at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Tice's exquisite prints are masterpieces of black and white photography that have received universal praise for their clarity of detail and the richness of contrasting values. Frequently, the beauty of his prints are at odds with his subject matter that so often focuses on old and neglected buildings, tacky shops and ordinary urban types. However, in his exquisite and ravishingly beautiful views of nature, technique and theme are superbly harmonized....
His role as a teacher is demonstrated by a selection of works by his mentees, including Sally Mann, Timothy Lee Barnwell, James Perry Walker and Brian Lav, among others. Most of these works were gifted to the Museum by Tice over the past 30 years.
