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.
Long out of print, South Central, South East and Greater Atlanta have been elusive goals for many libraries. This remastered release will be a welcome addition to any good library of photographic books.
With this new, remastered edition of these three important titles. 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.
