: Thu, Dec 9, 7pm - 9pm
Mark Steinmetz is a street photographer in the purest sense of the word. Influenced by Gary Winogrand and Lee Friedlander, Atget and Cartier-Bresson, it is obvious that Steinmetz knows about the "decisive moment". His strong belief in discipline and consistency mixes with his keen eye, wandering habits and an uncanny ability to know where to stand, to produce brilliant images of life in the American south.
Steinmetz is one of a rare breed of photographer today who develops his own film and prints his own black and white photographs by hand.
Steinmetz' work is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and most recently the High Museum of Art. He is represented in Atlanta by Jackson Fine Art and by Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York.
He is getting a lot of attention for the success of his three books published by Nasraeli Press: "South Central," "South East" and "Greater Atlanta", the latter chosen as one of Photo-Eye's top photo books of 2009.
Come be inspired by this local talent (he lives in Athens, GA ) as he talks about his work, his career path and future endeavors.
This event is free and open to the public. Reception at 6:30pm.
