About the work
Mark Steinmetz
American, b. 1961
Follow

Claiming, “I am more interested in a photography that collaborates with chance events,” Mark Steinmetz has been courting chance since the mid-1980s, keenly observing people and places and capturing them in disarming moments of humor, tenderness, and beauty. Working in series, he has concentrated on such subjects as kids and teenagers, small American towns, summer camp, schoolteachers, and street scenes in Paris and various Italian cities. Though he has worked in color, he concentrates primarily on black-and-white. While most other photographers embrace digital technologies, Steinmetz remains committed to film and to making his own prints in a darkroom, and has been using the same cameras, film, and chemicals throughout his career. “I have a strong emotional response to light and I insist that my prints convey this,” he explains, “so I still rely on film and silver paper.”
