Dominican Republic photos up on ZACKSMITH.COM / by Zack Smith

Alot of exciting news in Zack Smith Photography world. Too many to saturate your/my mind right now - so in time i will keep you updated. I do hope in the near future i will be able to blog from my website and it will be a one-stop shop.

One nice new thing, i started smoking my grandfathers pipe again. i recently tried to stop drinking for a bit during January and it worked until last week. So,i am back trying to stay clean so i picked up the pipe...w/ tobacco. So please send your favorite loose leafs to ma haus

As alot of you may know i took a trip down to the Domincan Republic in July of 2011, mainly to get away but i really can't just "get away" and do nothing. I ended up hustling in 3 cities during 9 days there documenting some notable local artists and one youth baseball team. The Dominican Republic boasts some of the top imported players in Major League Baseball - its true! And being a country that has been ruled by so many countries and cultures, it's art culture is vibrant, expressive, introspective and alive.

Armed with only a Mamiya 645AF and 20 rolls of 120 film, i set off to document with clarity, precision, and begin this very powerful story.
