If you have an interest in wildlife or nature photography there is a good chance you have seen an image at some point that has completely taken your breath away. Maybe it was a photograph of a sweeping landscape washed in the golden light of the dying afternoon sun or close-up of some small natural miracle that you had never noticed before that moment.
This is an experience as an intensely curious visitor perhaps a new resident might discover it. Smith was born in Wichita, Kansas, in His mother, Nettie Lee Caplinger Smith, was an amateur photographer. His father, William, lost his grain business in and shot himself.
Doctors were unable to save him with a blood transfusion from Gene. Smith had already had one photograph, of the drought-parched bed of the Arkansas River, appear in the New York Times. School did not suit Smith, however and he left after one year and moved to New York, where he worked on free-lance assignments.
As Stephenson writes in Dream Street: He shaded his prints with ever-deepening contrasts between dark and light, creating a visual metaphor for the basic struggle that he was witnessing in civilization, and feeling waged within himself. Smith, however, was not happy. He wanted complete control over printing his negatives and arranging his layouts, spent much more time on small assignments than his editors felt was necessary, and was generally cantankerous and difficult to deal with.
I think he loved that legend, fed off of it and fueled it.
He was primed for something like this. But we are lucky that it was Pittsburgh. He caught one of the most richly historic and important American cities in its prime. You see the Duquesne Club next to kids playing in the dirt — and there is no doubt that the kids are having fun.
He finally fulfilled his obligation by turning in the required prints two years after beginning the planned three-week assignment and then, aided by two Guggenheim fellowships, worked to organize the Pittsburgh photographs and find a publisher. He finally published a selection of Pittsburgh photographs in 38 pages of Photography Annualand wrote the accompanying text.
An editor, however, might have been helpful. Smith was accustomed to the larger pages of Life, and his layouts did not do justice to his pictures, nor did his text. The turmoil of his personal life — rocky marriages, a dependence on amphetamines, and never enough money — continued to rage, and his health to deteriorate, until his death in after a massive stroke.
The simple history of the Pittsburgh Project still does not explain why the photographs have not been given a museum exhibition until now The result, however, is atypical of his body of work.“Iconosquare has facilitated me in planning and has aided in the increase of our engagement through the analytics and insights which have been fundamental to the approach of our activity.”.
