Bent Tree is Mark Steinmetz’s second contribution to our One Picture Book Two series. The book comprises 16 photographs of a peculiarly curved tree that Steinmetz photographed for over twenty years, beginning in the mid-1990s. The tree is a short walk from his home in Athens, Georgia, and stands on its own in a field of kudzu; a set of railroad tracks run alongside it. Steinmetz photographed the tree through different years, seasons, times of day, and types of weather. Today, the backyards of new infill homes crowd up against it, and its seemingly brave, solitary posturing has been lost.
Bent Tree is limited to 500 numbered copies, each including a 5x7 inch original print that has been signed by the artist.
