American Horizons: The Photographs of Art Sinsabaugh includes a generous selection of Art Sinsabaugh's images, juxtaposing his classic Midwest prairie views and Chicago cityscapes with an instructive sampling of lesser-known works to offer a full portrayal of his oeuvre. The majority of images are drawn from the Art Sinsabaugh Archive at Indiana University, Bloomington.
A scholarly biographical and critical essay by Keith F. Davis, director of Kansas City's Hallmark Fine Art Collection, fills a long-overdue need to place a photographer known for his regional work in a larger context. As Davis relates in his conclusion, Sinsabaugh's particular interests, abilities, and capacity for expression combine to form a body of work that is "consistently remarkable and often great," constituting "an achievement of profound importance and integrity."
Supplemented by extensive materials by and about the artist, American Horizons offers the most complete available treatment of Sinsabaugh's life and career, and it will serve as the benchmark in the study of his work for many years to come.
