About South Central
Renowned for his modest yet powerful photographs that capture the sense of displacement and isolation felt by many young Americans. Mark Steinmetz photographed in and also around Knoxville, Tennessee to create the work that makes up South Central. So, the title of the book is derived from the South Central Bell telephone company that serves Knoxville. Their public payphones are a recurring theme in this work; an iconic reminder of the area’s socio economic condition. The artist possesses an uncanny ability to pull folly, aggression and tenderness through his lens simultaneously, and delivers with this book a powerful and touching visual novel of the human condition.
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.
