Mark Steinmetz - Summer Camp

Author(s): Mark Steinmetz

photography monographs

…At summer camp, you have sleeping bags, cabins and camp res. There isn’t much difference between them in 1990 or 1965. I like that time of age, too. There’s a kind of grave maturity developing at around 11 years old. When a little kid laughs or cries, it doesn’t have real resonance, whereas if someone has these emotions between eight and 12, there’s a poignancy to it. When they become adults, it’s just not the same. Many of these photos are about the predicament of being a kid put into a certain situation. In one picture, these girls who have been so horrible to each other all summer are now parting – and the depth of their love just gushes out. It’s almost excruciating..." — Mark Steinmetz, for Huck Mag
