Biography

Art Sinsabaugh is known for the photographs he took of America’s sweeping horizons—complete with bridges, highways, skyscrapers, and suburban sprawl—after he began working with a large-format “banquet” camera in the 1960s, which produced 12 x 20-inch negatives. In his elegantly composed black-and-white panoramas, Sinsabaugh captured the country’s transforming landscapes and cityscapes, from the flat farmland of the Midwest to the bustling streets of Chicago and the expansive stretches of Southwestern desert. He served as photographer for the War Department from 1942–43 and with the U.S. Army Air Corps from 1943–45, and he studied with Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Harry Callahan, Arthur Siegel, and Wayne Miller. Sinsabaugh was also a co-founder of the Society of Photographic Educators.
