"It takes the passage of time before an image of a commonplace subject can be assessed. The great difficulty of what I attempt is seeing beyond the moment; the everydayness of life gets in the way of the eternal."

George Tice's images communicate an overlooked connection between the everyday, commonplace aspects of living with the underlying truth about humanity's existence. Living, seeing, and experiencing life are recorded as the profound and wondrous phenomena they are.

Edward Steichen acquired Tice's photograph of the burning aircraft carrier WASP for the Museum of Modern Art, thus being the first to recognize Tice's photographic talents. Tice became the last printer to work for Steichen.
