Dana Smith, Photograper
Photographing BC Law professors for The Vision Project (“How the Pandemic Will Change Us”) during the pandemic certainly was a different experience for Boston-based shooter and illustrator Smith. “Photographing faculty at home provided me an opportunity to convey a sense of the solemnity of sheltering-in-place,” Smith says. “Domestic spaces have long been my favorite environs to shoot in and explore, so in this moment, I appreciated the opportunity to traipse around strangers’ back yards.” His images have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Time, Bloomberg, Fortune, Yankee, and more.
