From the streets and swamps of Louisiana, to the cozy back stages of the Voodoo Music Experience, Zack Smith creates comfortable confines that
elevate his unique style of portraiture. There is a subtle, yet strong connection between subject and photographer, a statement that Smith holds highest. Whether the background is a custom backdrop by Flavor Paper, a vine laden swamp, or street corner, Smith’s subjects connect with them and in turn, the viewer.
Portrait(s) will feature a selection of 4×5 shot portraits of artists that played the Preservation Hall Tent at the 2008 Voodoo Music Experience, and some of his recently shot portraits. Deacon John, Alec Ounsworth (of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), Ben Jaffe (Preservation Hall), and The Noisician Coalition are just a few of the new images you will see at the opening.
Zack Smith is a photographer, musician, and educator living and creating in New Orleans. He is the curator of CANARY Gallery in New Orleans, LA.
