SELF & OTHERS: PORTRAIT AS AUTOBIOGRAPHY -- ALINE SMITHSON. The Magenta Foundation, Toronto, 2015. 216 pp. (one foldout) with 127 ills. (75 col.). 31 x 29 cm. ISBN 9781926856063 In English.
Publisher's description: Created over an almost 20-year span and drawing from 18 bodies of work, this is the first published monograph of Aline Smithson's work and features her defining series Arrangement in Green and Black: Portrait of the Photographer's Mother. From black-and-white to hand-painted photographs, this collection of portraits combines humor and family to create a universal expression of motherhood, to capture the essence of childhood, and to examine created realities, the poignancy of childhood, and the pathos of aging and relationships. She brings a background in painting and fashion to her images, but at the heart of her work is her ability to recognize the inner self of her subjects. The photographer considers all her portraits as a reflection of herself and the stories she wants to tell and in this way she has created a visual language that is her own unique autobiography.
