Zave Smith Captures the inTangibles

“Sometimes I feel that I do my best work when I don’t give a damn.”

The reason, perhaps, why he gets assignments with these types of direction “Come down to Mardi Gras for a week and see what happens.”

Exuberant and poignant, philosophical and passionate, Zave Smith’s photographs capture the tangible pleasures and tactile experiences of life in close-up. Raised and trained in the Midwest, now working out of Philadelphia and New York, Zave has a special feeling for personality that suffuses his work.

Making pictures that make him smile. Not a bad criterion. For a photographer. Taking a huge greedy gulp of life.

“Kill the concept and create a killer photograph.” Sincerely, Zave Smith.
