George Tice – Common Mementos


George Tice – Common Mementos


Volume 3 in the Lodima Press Portfolio Book Series

Previously unpublished photographs from Tice's urban landscapes series. They were taken in the 1990s, a period when Tice was especially prolific.

Common Mementos is akin to a short story, a short film, an essay. It is my attempt to define and interpret the New Jersey with which I was familiar. I think of it as a journey in time as well as place. ”

— George Tice

GEORGE TICE was born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1938. He began photographing in 1953, when he joined a local camera club. Fields of Peace (1970), Paterson (1972), and George Tice: Urban Landscapes (2002) are among his best known books.

His numerous exhibitions include solo exhibitions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (1972) and the International Center of Photography (2002). He has been awarded fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Bradford Fellowship (England), and the New Jersey State Council of the Arts.

In 2003, he received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from William Paterson University. His most recent book, Paterson II, was published in conjunction with a major exhibition at the Newark Museum in 2006.


“I do think this is one of the most exciting publishing projects in recent years. If I had stayed in publishing I would have fantasized about producing a series like yours.”
