Details

His themes include:
  • manipulated war photography provoking debate about truth in war
  • male bonding images questioning masculine identity
  • a lone adventurer seeking freedom, but becoming an artificial hero

  • There is a moral tone to Smith's work: subjects are chosen with special care and his images are highly constructed and polished. His complex arrangements are characterized by:
  • deliberately unattractive set of physical types
  • mutated body-morphs
  • clearly-staged manipulations
