Self & Others will feature a selection of images from Aline Smithson’s retrospective monograph, Self & Others: Portrait as Autobiography (Magenta Foundation, 2015).
Self & Others: Portrait as Autobiography is an almost 20 year culmination of portrait photographs captured by award-winning Los Angeles based photographer Aline Smithson. Aline brings a background in painting and fashion to her images, but at the heart of her work is her ability to recognize the inner self of her subjects. The photographer considers all her portraits a reflection of herself and the stories she wants to tell, and in that way, she has created a visual language that is her own unique autobiography. The exhibition will include work from several series, including Spring Fever, Revisiting Beauty, and People I Don’t Know.
Books will be available for purchase and signing during the opening.
