Seeking out the quintessentially American celebrations and rituals in his Midwestern stomping grounds, Sinclair’s portraits of sun-dappled barbecues, baseball games and fairgrounds possess both a comfort and wonderment in their honesty. Finding himself in crowds where he is often staring at the spectacle that everyone else is immersed in, Sinclair’s images of these loosely organized forms of congregation ruminate on the American experience, poetically lifting the ordinary into the idyllic.
