Key West In Plain View: Photographs by Kathy Smith
Key West in Plain View: Photographs by Kathy Smith is the third addition to Smith’s In Plain View Series of travel photography books, following Savannah in Plain View (2000) and In Plain View Seattle (2006.) Traveling with her Classic Diana Camera Smith takes us along as she explores her chosen locations and recording images, “the types of images that mythologize a city,” as said by the Seattle Weekly after reviewing Smith’s first book, In Plain View Seattle: Photographs by Kathy Smith. Smith’s use of the Diana Camera lends a timeless quality to her images that combines splendidly with her keen eye for capturing the essence of a city. Light leaks produced by the Diana complement Smith’s quick and steady eye resulting in a body of work capable of living up to the idea of time-travel.
