Subtraction and refraction: self and process in the work of Martin Smith
Robb, Charles A. (2008) Subtraction and refraction: self and process in the work of Martin Smith. In Ortega, Maurice (Ed.) Martin Smith photographs: in response to... Queensland Centre for Photography, Brisbane, QLD, pp. 13-15.
The article analyses the work of Brisbane-based photographer Martin Smith in relation to ideas of male subjectivity and the notion of loss. It contends that Smith's work exempifies a notion of masculinity that uses layering and interpenetration of image and medium to represent a masculine subjectivity characterised by contingency and intersubjective awareness.
