Mark Steinmetz’s first book of cat photographs, Ancient Tigers of My Neighborhood, was published in a limited edition as part of our Six by Six series, and was nominated by Robert Adams as a “Best Book of 2010” at the Kassel Photobook Festival in Germany. For his first contribution to our new One Picture Book Two series, Steinmetz again has chosen cats as the subject and we are pleased to make this aspect of the artist’s work available to a wider audience.
Beautifully printed on Matt art paper, Cats features fourteen never before published photographs of cats and kittens making themselves at home in Athens, Georgia.
Mark Steinmetz is a Guggenheim Fellow, and his work is included in the permanent collections of many important institutions, including Museum of Modern Art, New York; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Art Institute of Chicago; and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Cats is limited to 500 numbered copies, each including a 5x7 inch original print that has been signed by the artist (see colour image).
