Piercing the Darkness
Susan S. Bank
Susan S. Bank peels away the veneer from Havana, that maddening, mythical metropolis with one eye on the Florida Straits. An imaginary tropical urban paradise, Havana is flirtatious and consistently inconsistent. Bypassing worn out clichés, Bank illuminates the invisible with her iconic, metaphorical black and white photographs.
We now see images that were locked away in Tice’s files—some for more than forty years—come to life. None of these one hundred exquisite photographs have been published in any of Tice’s previous books. There is much to savor in this collection, from the Great Falls of the Passaic River in Paterson, to Tice’s memento mori of the now vanished twin towers of the World Trade Center, to how America honors Lincoln, her greatest president, to Winslow Farm in Fairmount, Indiana where Tice’s idol, the actor James Dean, was raised. Times have changed, decades have passed, but Tice’s vision remains consistent, understated and masterful.
