Good Records, Dallas TX
I like to visit the photoblog of my acquaintance and sometime instructor, Allison V. Smith. Her commercial work is eye candy, the popping colors she finds evoke the personalities of her subjects. Smith often shoots musicians because of her knack for capturing images that sing like choruses, rock like the blues, and blare like reverb-ed guitars.
The Polyphonic Spree
While she finds subjects everywhere, my favorite images of Allison's are from her on-going explorations of Marfa, Texas. They are, at turns, measured and exuberant. She loves the play of geometries -- intersecting neon lines, collages of irregular shapes, and rectangular, colored planes of natural or man-made spaces meeting at vanishing points.
Although Allison's efforts need little advertisment (her images speak loudly for themselves!), it is always important to promote and share the work of burgeoning, young artists. Smith is on her way to tremendous success. See her other works here.
