Statement

Ashley Catharine Smith's work employs a combination of photography, video, textiles, and fibers to investigate relationships between herself and others. The work addresses themes of gender, manipulation, power and control, and trust based upon experiences with interpersonal relationships and societal pressures. It is driven by her desire to understand how gender roles affect our ability to engage in relationships. The work acts to construct moments of closeness with the subject of the photograph through the printed image.
