George Tice is best-known for his meticulous black-and-white photography of New Jersey and its surrounds, where he has lived for most of his life. He spent his youth working at various photography-related businesses around New Jersey, including portrait studios and camera shops, photographing all the while. His first book of photographs, Paterson, was published by Rutgers University Press and exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1971. The success of this project led to his establishment as a major figure in the world of art photography, which he remains today. Tice continues to live and work in New Jersey, as do his daughters, who assist him in his studio.
