Art Sinsabaugh (American, 1924-1983) was born in Irvington, New Jersey. He served as a photographer for the War Department from 1942-43 and with the U.S. Army Air Corps from 1943-45. In 1949 Sinsabaugh earned a B.A. from the Institute of Design in Chicago where he studied under László Moholy-Nagy, Harry Callahan, Arthur Siegel and Wayne Miller. He went on to teach at the ID from 1949-59 and at University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana from 1959-83. Sinsabaugh made his breakthrough as an artist in the early 1960s with a giant "banquet" camera that produced 12 x 20-inch negatives. He used this extra-large-format to capture the sweeping horizons of nature and the relationships between the land and its conventional components—buildings, bridges, skyscrapers, trees and highways.  Always committed to education, Sinsabaugh was a co-founder of the Society of Photographic Educators and had major roles in founding other professional organizations such as the Society of Typographic Art and the Center for Advanced Studies.
