"Who has ever seen Italian olive oil trees this well? For the past five years or so Mark Steinmetz has been teaching in the summer photography program of the Art Department of the University of Georgia at Cortona, in Tuscany. Tuscan Trees offers a portfolio of some of his most luminous findings. The shimmering animation of his olive trees is of an order that suggests what Aaron Siskind achieved with his anthropomorphic rocks and walls, surely an epiphany in photographic history." -Jonathan Williams, on front flap of the trade edition.
