New Orleans photographer Zack Smith is a widely collected and published artist, gallery curator, educator and musician. His engaging portraits and street photography has been shown all over the South, and is featured in 3 books and consistently in a number of national music and culture magazines.
Smith has a knack for making backyards and street corners some of the most quiet and peaceful places. Since 2001 Smith has found his home for making his style of introspective, powerful portraits of musicians in the loudest of places.
Amidst the thumping rock music of New Orleans’ Voodoo Music Experience Festival, and the Bywater’s hidden gem, Chaz Fest, Smith has carved out a niche with his backdrops for musicians to hang, and be photographed. This series at Three Muses is a small section of these projects.
