Mark Steinmetz Looking South, Photographs from the Do Good Fund, is an elegant and quiet collection of black-and-white photographs “drawn from the artist’s decades-long career photographing the southeastern United States, primarily in Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. Steinmetz’s images are imbued with an intrinsically Southern tenderness, melancholy and longing that is universally resonant”. The work is documentary in nature but he brings a sublime seeing to his subjects, captured with a nod towards beauty and dignity and very much in keeping with the approach of Southern grace.
Exhibit is open by appointment and for Click! Photography Festival programming events.
