"Mark Steinmetz' ‘15 Miles to K-Ville’ is a poetic journey around the outskirts of K-Ville: a fictional town somewhere between Knoxville, Tennessee and Athens, Georgia, where graves dot the terrain and a sense of forbidding hangs heavy in the air.
This collection of darkly humorous and melancholy portraits and landscapes date from the early 1990s when the American photographer was moving between these two cities." (publisher's note)

"I love the South for its warmth and chaos. The vegetation down here grows rampant; the light is softened by humid air. The people are for the most part friendly and they are comfortable in their bodies. They tend to be more open to being photographed by a stranger. The unexpected happens here a lot." (Mark Steinmetz)

Review:
"K-Ville is a fictional place somewhere between Tennessee and Georgia that Steinmetz has conjured through his sheer prowess as a photographer. For those familiar with his work, these photographs made between 1993 and 1996 will feel like new discoveries that surprise and delight in photographic territory you thought you knew well."
