wise man once said:

From the streets and swamps of Louisiana, to the cozy backstages of the Voodoo Music Experience, Zack Smith creates comfortable confines that elevate his unique style of portraiture. There is a subtle, yet strong connection between subject and photographer, a statement that Smith holds high. Whether the background is a custom backdrop by Flavor Paper, a vine laden swamp, or street corner, Smith's subjects connect with them, and in turn, the viewer.

Portrait(s) will feature a selection of 4x5 shot portraits of artists that played the Preservation Hall Tent at the 2008 Voodoo Music Experience, and some of his recently shot portraits. Louisiana legends such as Deacon John Moore, Walter "Wolfman" Washington, and the Preservation Hall, and stallar talents such as Alec Ounsworth (of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), Guitar Lightnin' Lee, Mike Dillon and The Noisician Coalition are just a few of the new images printed by the photographer, some as large as 4'x5'.

Here's a few images in the show for you out of towners.
