Burk Uzzle fills the entire space with his unique view of the persons, places and oddities that define the singular and diverse character of America.

Burk Uzzle... Sex Pit, Alabama (2006, c-print, edition 10). From Burk Uzzle - Just Add Water: America in Color at Laurence Miller Gallery in New York. "...Burk Uzzle grew up in the south, began working at the age of 14, got his first full-time job as a photographer at age 17, became LIFE’s first contract photographer at age 23, and has twice been elected president of Magnum. In spite of, or because of, his intrepid nature—he has traveled throughout America and Europe many times—he has said it is the small towns and ordinary places that interest him most. In Just Add Water: America in Color, Uzzle shares his love of and fondness for the American landscape and her people in an extraordinary way, by photographing the most unlikely people and things: a wall of gum in Seattle, a plastic Santa on a porch in Florida, POPEYE spelled out in wreaths in a cemetery in North Carolina."
