Rodney Smith Image of Grace



While many fashion shooters feed off of the energy and transient nature of the fashion industry, Rodney Smith's photographs seek to capture fashion on more timeless terms. Many of his images have an almost classical - European appeal. Indeed, where other's seek to reveal trends or foresee the future, Smith's goal is to help fashion define itself and seek its own identity.

"I think they [the fashion industry] are too busy chasing after something that I think is misplaced," he says. "They are busy trying to find something new. They are busy trying to second guess what the market needs or what the market wants or they are busy looking outside themselves rather than trying to find something important to say within themselves."
