Steven B. Smith is a photographer whose work chronicles the transition of the dramatic and formidable Western landscape into a kind of tamed and caged suburbia. The photographs depict what has become derisively referred to as suburban sprawl, but they also reveal conflicted feelings about development in the West in general. Many are simultaneously funny and bleak, a byproduct perhaps of his affection for and identification with the area. How the people who dwell in these spaces make use of them and incorporate them into their habitats is Smiths singular preoccupation. [Extract : Sasha Wolf Gallery]
