Peter Goin has spent the majority of his life in the great American outback that includes the Basin and Range country of northern Nevada. Traveling from Vya through Gerlach to Fallon and Tonopah, to Elko and Ely down to Boulder City and Las Vegas and circling to Reno, he belongs to these landscapes that boom and bust, have coyote eyes and desert springs, red mountains and Shakespearian peaks. He is the author of books exploring paradigms of place, including Tracing the Line: A Photographic Survey of the Mexican-American Border; Nuclear Landscapes; Stopping Time: A Rephotographic Survey of Lake Tahoe, Nevada Rock Art, and Humanature. Searching, envisioning, and defining the hearth of aridity is a rich heritage, reflected in coauthored books such as Black Rock, with Paul F. Starrs, and to the new nature of that which is raised and farmed, A Field Guide to California Agriculture. His recent books are with Lucy Lippard, Time and Time Again: History, Rephotography, and Preservation in the Chaco World that explores the mysteries of time and identity in ancestral architecture, and, with the poet Gary Snyder, Dooby Lane, a chronicle of Gerlach inscribed in stone tablets at the gateway to the Black Rock. Peter’s photographs have been exhibited in more than fifty museums nationally and internationally, and he is the recipient of multiple awards from the National Endowment for the Arts to Nevada Governor’s Millennium Award for Excellence in the Arts.
