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.
