Smith Galtney's current show, The Loved Ones, is a collaboration with New York-based photographer Matthew Papa. It hangs at Speedwell Projects in Portland, Maine through September 1.
Smith is a recent graduate of the General Studies program at the International Center of Photography. He also studied photography at the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies in Portland, Maine.
In the fall of 2014, he was commissioned by the Frannie Peabody Center to create SeeingME: Profiles of Resilience, a series of portraits highlighting the diverse individuals who represent the AIDS/HIV community in Maine. His ongoing project, currently titled The Ballad of Domestic Tranquility, is an autobiographical body of work that portrays gay marriage for what it is - enormous in a historical sense, yet average and unremarkable in the day-to-day.
An entertainment journalist for more than 20 years, Smith has written for The New York Times, GQ, Rolling Stone, Time Out New York, The Village Voice, Out and O: The Oprah Magazine, as well as NPR, VH1 and Fuse. He’s currently the author of "Cultural Attachment," a bimonthly column on pop culture for Las Vegas Weekly.
Smith lives in Raymond, Maine, with his partner John and an English bulldog named Kate.
