New Orleans photographer Zack Smith, known for his striking, storytelling, environmental portraiture of local and nationally known musicians, is unveiling a body of work begun almost 12 years ago. Smith began his discovery of photography by doing street photography around Louisiana, as well as his travels around the country, where he has amassed a collection of stunning straight street photography and panoramic multi-exposure Holga photographs. "Shoot for the Wall" echoes Smith's photographic ideology that the substance, subject, and composition that is seen with the eye and the full frame negative need not be captured unless you intend to put it on the wall without apology.
