His work has been shedding light on cultural issues including regional corruption in areas including South Sudan, Haiti, and Mumbai. Frank’s work focuses on people, landscapes, and culture. Much of his focus has been on India and in the past decade he has traveled to all four corners of the subcontinent. Our episode will focus a lot on this work and well as Frank’s Travels.
About Frank Smith
At an early age (3 years old+/-) I developed a curiosity with photography. My grandfather, Frank Fehn was an avid photographer, always with his Leica camera in his hand and me by his side. He bought me a miniature replica 35mm camera which was the beginning of my life-long passion for photography.
Photography is my passion – both in taking the pictures as well as the post processing techniques that I use. I am an experienced traveler having had the opportunity to photograph in places around the world. As a native of the northeast, I also enjoy the local scenery of the Pocono Mountains or urban decay and iconic subjects as well as historical sites such as the former Bethlehem Steel factory in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. My portfolio is diverse.
About Inside the Photographer’s Mind
Photography has two sides to it; capturing and creating. Some photographers lean in one direction over the other while other photographers balance the two. The Phoblographer, Madavor Media, and Adorama TV invite you to join Chris Gampat as he speaks with established professional photographers and up-and-comers alike from various backgrounds on the thought processes behind their images while connecting the technical and artistic sides of their brain in the creative process.
