News__ Saturday Selection

Every Saturday we select a photo from our Flickr pool to be featured on hearty

Percy Smith has been shooting since he was 15-years-old, spending a good portion of those years in the darkroom.  After going to college at Sheridan for photography, Percy says he was completely burned out from doing so much commercial photography that he didn't pick up a camera for 4 years.  Now he shoots completely for fun and hopes it stays that way.

This photo was taken of Percy's friend with half of his cornrows pulled out. Percy's camera of choice right now is the Yashica Mat because it's an inexpensive medium format camera which he can drag around everywhere.

Percy will be showing his work in a group show at Alibi in Montreal, Quebec July 15th onward, so if you'll be in Montreal, check it out.

To see more of Percy's work please check out his Tumblr.
