When it comes to photography, I’m pretty terrible at editing; a sense of nostalgia always clouds my judgment regarding the quality of some shots stacked up against others.

Welcome to Distorted Perspective. A brief introduction—

—Colin Smith. Born 1982. Some punk rock kid turned multidisciplinary artist & graphic designer-type. An Alaskan in Oregon by way of New England, Georgia, Texas and California looking for hope in the wind. Working in the various languages of truth, systems and identity.

I create works of assembly—by taking a variety of disparate components in any medium and attempting to build a cohesive whole, I look to mimic the disorder and confusion in our imperfect, ever-evolving social structures. I work in a variety of mediums yet try to speak through all of them in the same language.
