Eric Smith has been documenting the performing arts for over 40 years. Hopefully he will get his tens of thousands of image files reasonably organized, and archived, before his eyesight and/or mind fails him. The digital images are manageable, the negative film files — those are a wee cause for concern.
Formerly an educator and student media advisor at the University of Tennessee for over 30 years, he has since retired from those hallowed halls of academia, survived esophageal cancer and the related trappings, and remains active in documenting that which gives him joy. A curated list of subjects and venues will be added at a later date.
Eric holds a B.A. in Communications and an M.F.A. in Graphic Design, and has decades of experience in poster, logo, and publication design, but primarily works as a photographer. Go figure — it works for him.
