Publisher's Description

Limited edition of 350 numbered and signed copies.

“I entered the Yale School of Art straight from college and left after my first semester. I was 21. I was restless, curious about the America that lay beyond New England, and had a strong interest in the movie industry; I also had heard that Garry Winogrand was somewhere in Los Angeles so in the summer of 1983 I headed west.” – Mark Steinmetz, from the Preface

Angel City West offers a touching, highly personal look at Los Angeles through the eyes of Mark Steinmetz as a young artist straight out of school. In his preface to the work, Steinmetz describes living in a studio apartment in the Miracle Mile district, complete with a futon surrounded by a dozen roach motels and a makeshift darkroom set up in a tiny nook off of the bathroom. It didn’t take long before he ran into Garry Winogrand, for whom he became a kind of unofficial chauffeur, enabling Winogrand to photograph through the car window while Steinmetz navigated the streets of his new home town.

Viewed together in book form, the 58 photographs presented in Angel City West document Steinmetz finding his own voice as an artist. In light of the later projects for which he has become so well known, this early series of street photographs, informal portraits and landscapes foreshadows the sometimes humorous, oftentimes sad, and always poignant mood that runs through Mark Steinmetz’s work.

Mark Steinmetz’s photographs have been exhibited extensively throughout the United States and Europe, and are included in the permanent collections of many important institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
