Mark Steinmetz completes his powerful and moving trilogy, ‘South’, with Greater Atlanta. Photographing in Atlanta and its outlying regions, Steinmetz provides his testimony on contemporary American civilization. Combining portraits and landscapes, he weaves a symbolic and lyrical investigation that subtly questions notions of progress. He further develops motifs — on the automobile, on the telephone — that were first introduced in ‘South Central’, and catalogues car culture, fast food, convenience stores, and suburban sprawl.
Steinmetz’s celebrated trilogy “South” (consisting of South Central, South East, and Greater Atlanta) was published by Nazraeli Press between 2007 and 2009 – this is a new, remastered edition. The format, sequence and design are true to the original printings. The materials, however, have been upgraded; the books are now bound in cloth over board, and printed in quadratone on a special matte art paper.
