From the Publisher:
From 1982-2001 the American photographer Mark Steinmetz travelled to country fairs, urban street carnivals, as well as small circuses across the United States, to make photographs of the families, teens and carnies that contain all the warmth and frenetic energy of a day at the Carnival.
“People from all walks of life go to the fair seeking something to transport them from the everyday. Amid the excitement and sounds of the rides and games, I could slip by largely unnoticed and capture gestures and faces.” - Mark Steinmetz
Mark Steinmetz has spent his career, beginning in the mid 1980s, relying on chance events to capture his photographs. Working in series, his intimate black and white photographs cover subjects such as children and teenagers. As well as small south eastern American towns, street scenes in Paris, and various Italian cities. In alignment with this chance driven approach, Steinmetz is committed to presenting the viewer with images that are then open to multiple interpretations. As opposed to creating specific narratives or singular emotional effects.
