Famous for his modest but powerful photographs that capture the sense of displacement and isolation experienced by many young Americans, Mark Steinmetz photographed in and around Knoxville, Tennessee, to create the work that composes South Central. The title of the book comes from the South Central Bell telephone company that serves Knoxville, and their public phones are a recurring theme in this work; an iconic reminder of the socio-economic condition of the area. The artist possesses an incredible ability to simultaneously drag madness, aggressiveness and tenderness through his lens and offers with this book a powerful and touching visual novel of the human condition.
