Designed as a companion book to his critically-acclaimed monograph South Central, Mark Steinmetz here turns his focus to Athens and Atlanta, New Orleans, Memphis and East Tennessee, and the roads between.
Highly regarded for his black-and-white portraits, Steinmetz is renowned for producing powerful pictures which capture the strong sense of displacement and isolation that is felt by many young Americans. South East opens with an introduction by Peter Galassi, former Chief Curator of the Department of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
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.
