Harvey Smith

A lifetime pursuit of excellence in photography and a love for the open road, makes the Route One Project a dream effort for him.  The influence of Walker Evans, is evident in the documentary style of his work.  Route one has special memories for many Americans and he wants to capture the spirit of the highway in his artwork.

Harvey has spent many hours in his own darkroom honing the skills of  fine art  portraiture. That skill allowed him to expand the documentary photography of his many road trips into fine architectural portraits painted digitally with virtual paint.  He has studied both film based and digital photography at Virginia Commonwealth University.
