Greg Stimac works within a mode of photography that possesses a rich history: the photographic series, constructed from images captured in travels around the United States. While individual photographs are generally not planned or staged, the ideas for various series are carefully considered. Mowing the lawn, gun portraits, snowmen, and roadside memorials are but a few examples of his subjects, and are selected to illuminate both the American character and document ways in which we structure our lives through activities and rituals. The straightforward but haunting color images simultaneously serve as portraits and documents.
