From the breathatking grandeur of Arizona canyons to the humble boardwalk of Asbury Park, New Jersey, Sinsabaugh, in a career spanning over three decades, reveals the contours of 20th-century American life in empty milk bottles and vacant folding chairs, expanses of parked automobiles and decaying heaps of junked ones, and the mighty Chicago skyline by both day and night. “His remarkable photographs capture a richly nuanced sense of place and the ever-changing face of the American environment” (PBS). Simultaneously issued in hardcover. See Lenman, 581. From the collection of Peter Turnley, acclaimed photojournalist for Newsweek, Life and Harper’s Magazine, who has covered “almost every important international news event of the last 15 years” (New York Times).
