Carmelia’s presents photographer Pauline Smith!

Artist Statement:
Since 2000, self-taught photographer, Pauline Smith, has taken her cameras to Canada, China, France, Greece, Italy, Macau, Mexico, Portugal, Spain, Turkey and across the U.S.  Pauline uses a Holga camera with 120mm film to create her B&W images.  “I use the Holga for its inherent dream-like quality.  When I create an image, I look for angles/curves, asymmetry/symmetry, light/shadow and texture.  I look to find the familiar in a place I have never been.  I look to capture and otherwise missed moment.  I look for stillness.”  Pauline lives in Seattle and has shown her work in solo and group exhibitions in the greater Seattle area since 2002.
