Peter Goin is a Foundation Professor of Art in photography/Time Based Media (videography) at
the University of Nevada, Reno. He is the author of books exploring paradigms of the American
landscape, 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, to name a few.
Inevitably, manuscripts that focus on understanding, envisioning, and defining the
perception of landscape involve dedicated coauthored projects, including the Atlas of the New West; A Doubtful River; Changing Mines in America; and with Paul F. Starrs, Black Rock, a dedicated investigation of the phenomenal desert and mountain region in northern Nevada; and, A Field Guide to California Agriculture. His most recent book, Time and Time Again: History, Rephotography, and Preservation in the Chaco World was coauthored with Lucy Lippard.
Peter’s photographs have been exhibited in more than fifty museums nationally and
internationally, and he is the recipient of two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships. At the turn of the new century he was awarded Nevada Governor’s Millennium Award for Excellence in the Arts.
