Mark Steinmetz's follow-up monograph to his classic trilogy "South Central / South East / Greater Atlanta", "Summertime" is a series of portraits of kids and teenagers caught in the midst of activity in distinctly American settings. Made between 1984 and 1991 when kids and teenagers were able to roam their neighborhoods with less supervision than today riding bikes without wearing helmets, and hanging out without constant digital interruptions, these black and white photographs capture the light and feel of an endless summer. Beautifully printed on uncoated Japanese stock with the publisher's exclusive "Daido black" ink, this charming, long unavailable tome was printed in a first edition of one thousand copies casebound copies. A brand new, most handsome example SIGNED AND DATED "Mark Steinmetz / 2012" in pencil on the title page. 978-159005-348-6 Inventory Number: E000MSS
