American Horizons: The Photographs Of Art Sinsabau

Episode 1 of 1

Art Sinsabaugh's Midwest landscapes, photographed in the 1960s, were unprecedented in both subject matter and format. He used a gigantic 12 x 20 inch "banquet" camera to capture panoramic photographs of rural and suburban spaces not normally treated as traditional "landscapes," and his large-format photographs were sometimes only 1" tall but 35" wide. Although admired by scholars, photographers and curators as an important innovator, Sinsabaugh's fame has been limited, partially because he often produced only a few prints of each photograph. For this reason his mounted exhibition prints are extremely rare. This program is as much about what an artist sees, as it is about seeing the artist.
