Mark Steinmetz's Summertime

Charles A. Hartman gallery in Portland presents Summertime, a poignant early body of work by the photographer Mark Steinmetz. The photographs in this exhibition were taken between 1984 and 1991. They were made in Boston and New England, Chicago and rural Illinois, and Knoxville, Tennessee. Like all of Steinmetz's images, they embrace the space between artist and subject with a curiosity that is empathetic and enigmatic. Summertime, a recently published monograph by Nazraeli Press will accompany the exhibition. Summertime will be on view from June 20 to July 28, 2012 at Charles A. Hartman Fine Art, 134 NW 8th Avenue, Portland, Oregon
