Peter Goin



Jean Dixon

Peter Goin is an American photographer best known for his work within the altered landscape, specifically his photographs published in the book Nuclear Landscapes. His work has been shown in over fifty museums nationally and internationally and he is the recipient of two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships. Goin is currently a Foundation Professor of Art in Photography and Videography at the University of Nevada, Reno. He has also done extensive rephotography work in the Lake Tahoe region.

First off the presses is "A New Form of Beauty: Glen Canyon Beyond Climate Change" coauthored with Peter Friederici. (University of Arizona Press).

Peter Goin is not just a visual storyteller, but a writer, researcher, scholar, and photographer who spends extended time along the byways of rivers, lakes, and dry playas, from Hite to Page, Chaco and Mesa Verde to Black Rock, site of the Burning Man festival, and beyond.

Peter is the author of books exploring paradigms of place, including but not limited to "Tracing the Line: A Photographic Survey of the Mexican-American Border," Nuclear Landscapes, Nevada Rock Art,"Arid Lands" and "Humanature." Peter and Lucy Lippard coauthored "Time and Time Again: History, Rephotography, and Preservation in the Chaco World" – a journey that delves into Ancestral Pueblo and culture at Chaco Canyon and its outliers, and within Mesa Verde, time and time again.

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.
