“Grace’s particular answer to the question of what makes us American is as subjective as it is truthful. Like all of his predecessors, he has found something both beautiful and uncomfortable in our circumstances over the past half century.” -Brett Abbott

Arthur Grace: America 101

Introduction by Brett Abbott.

Arthur Grace: America 101An award-winning photojournalist and social documentarian, Arthur Grace (born 1947) has traveled globally and to every region of America on assignment for major news organizations as well as for his own personal projects since the early 1970s. In America 101, Grace draws 101 pictures from his rich personal archive to assemble a visual crash course on what defines and represents us as Americans. Organized here into thematic chapters, Grace’s book plumbs America’s cultural DNA, fusing the style and the physical proximity of a photojournalist with the conceptual distance and healthy skepticism of an artist. As High Museum of Art Curator of Photography, Brett Abbott, states in his introductory essay, “In Grace’s America, the ordinary meets the absurd, veneration and irreverence comingle in unexpected and delightfully humorous ways, a lighthearted joie de vivre soothes a violent vein, and the sanctity of the individual competes with our continual drive toward collective direction.”

Featured image, "Albuquerque, New Mexico, 1986," is reproduced from Arthur Grace: America 101.

Whatever we are, Arthur Grace captured it in 'America 101’

Featured image, titled “Worcester, Massachusetts, 1976,” is from America 101 photojournalist Arthur Grace’s classic 1970s document of American civilization. Brett Abbott writes, “Ultimately, Grace’s study represents the yin and yang of America, depicting a union held together by its diversity and continual negotiation between opposing forces. In Grace’s America, the ordinary meets the absurd, veneration and irreverence comingle in unexpected and delightfully humorous ways, a lighthearted joie de vivre soothes a violent vein, and the sanctity of the individual competes with our continual drive toward collective direction. Indeed, what is perhaps so prescient about Grace’s condensation of the past is how much it resembles the basic structure of our present. … Grace reminds us that the greatest quirk of our cultural DNA is that, despite our adherence to the past, we still have the brash capacity and tried aptitude for evolution.” continue to blog
