These pictures, made in the seventies and eighties, offer a window onto the beginning and breadth of Mitch Epstein's career. Most of these photographs are previously unpublished - culled from a body of work that goes back thirty years. With an eye that embalms ordinary things in a state of perpetual amazement, Epstein makes extraordinary appears at perfect ease in the world.

Epstein's sharp wit is laced with compassion. He has turned these rituals of boredom and beauty, excess and denial, alienation and possibility, into no less than a distillation of modern America.
