Steinmetz: Photographer


Steinmetz was renowned for his sense of humor, evident in his experiments with photography.

“In the days before photoshop and quick editing Steinmetz would create double exposures and triple exposures, and you could superimpose negatives over each other and get interesting effects, like flying.”
