Mark Steinmetz: United States 1

Mark Steinmetz: United States 1

As Mark Steinmetz says, “Photography is always just slices, its bits, and pieces. The people I photograph, you don’t know what their lives are like, but at this moment, in this light in this setting, it looks like something.

That’s the magic of all of this. You need a great sensitivity as a photographer to catch the beauty of the mundane with…
