Twelve Frames With Claudia Smith

Twenty four hours of a summer in Paris, seen through twelve frames, by Claudia Smith.

Claudia Smith is a human of few words, in that she prefers her photographs do the talking, and they speak volumes. Ever curious and forever evolving, Claudia has a gentle eye that always captures a deeper essence than what might be seen on first glance. Dancing with herself as a master of the self-portrait and bringing a refreshing eye to the saturated world of fashion photography, her photographs are steeped in class.

Everybody has a friend that they know is “bound for great things”, Claudia is one those friends to many I’m sure. Whether it’s painterly portraits in beautiful landscapes or bare and elegant interiors, Claudia’s photographs are rich of a personal nuance and never brash. Like the perfect meal: simple, but indelible.

Thanks for being a part of Twelve Frames, Claudia. Always looking forward to what’s next for you.

Claudia shot her roll of Portra on the streets of Montmartre in the 18 eme, Paris.
