Shot against a stark white background, Smith’s photographs allow her subjects to appear naturally and reveal raw emotions, without environmental influence or outside suggestion. The pictures themselves are only half of each piece. Only after the subject has written his or her personal story in the white space of his or her portrait does the completed work take shape.
